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.
