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.

In a message dated 11/3/2003 Central Standard Time,
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.
