Iris ensata 'Pink Frost'

28th June 2014

Raised by Walter Marx and registered in 1955. A self pale pink woith lrge flat flowers raised from an open pollinated pod on 'Mata Hari'.
The Marx Gardens catalogue says:

1955. Pink Frost (Marx 1954) Each $6.00. An enchanting new pink unlike any other of the hundreds of pink seedlings that bloom here each year. The colour is just a shade lighter than 'World's Delight' and is intensely ruffled. The waved somewhat pointed falls create a novel effect in profile. Double 8 inch flowers later than 'World's Delight'.

My plant looks like pictures of the real thing.
