This is the most beautiful true rose pink modern iris I have ever seen. We do mostly historics, but when I saw this I just had to have it. they could have picked a more mystical sounding name for such a beauty, but It is pure magic! We purchased ours on ebay! its becoming harder to find for a modern as it is so desirable.
