Wonderful, we need strong, vigorous pinks.  The best one I have now is Lauer’s Pink Champagne.  It was the strongest growing most disease free iris in my big guest bed for the past two years.  It has loads of pollen too.  I’m looking forward to making crosses with it.  Pink Attraction is very weak for me.  I planted two a year ago.  Neither bloomed and one has died.


My very favorite pink here, disease resistant but only a fair increaser, is Appleblossom Days, Hamner, 1992.  It’s not well known, but it’s a real beauty and fragrant too.  I will post a picture of a clump that I took this spring.  I have many of its seeds to plant this week.  Someday, God willing, I’ll get that form with Pink Champagne’s vigor.

A few months ago, there were discussions about the difficulty of finding pink irises that are strong. In 2000, I crossed KW onto a very strong pink seedling of mine from PESENCE X PINK ATTRACTION.  The results are some of the strongest seedlings I have ever seen.  One has turned out to be rather special . . . more next spring!  No it doesn't rebloom.
