VALENTINE'S DAY: (Vernon Wood, R. 1996). Sdlg. 92-49. TB 34" (86 cm) VE. "Ruffled pink (near RHS 56B) self; beards tangerine. Sib to Sly Fox., Stockton 1997." Very nice delicate color of pink; a little on the tender side here in 5a/b. Sub-teen temperatures without snow cover can cause serious problems. Best in southerly, sheldered locations in cold winter areas.

This is a very pretty iris and an excellent grower for me. The flowers aren't large but have a beautiful form and soft pink tones. It has taken over one of my back beds, in fact, growing so heartily that the iris I planted near it have been pushed out.
