Eros (Aphrodite x Vesper) Meid-Reidel 1934 M TB Historic HM 1934 AM 1936. Wonderful True Pink iris with yellow horns and pale yellow veining on the beard. Truest pink historic iris i've ever seen, with kind of a salmon tinge to it that it takes on, after it's been open for a bit, and it starts to decline,..just really beautiful, the only other very old small bloom size ancient pink that comes close to it in color, size and appearance, is the rare iris 'Tokay' by Nichols.
