HEARTBREAKER (D. Hall, R. 1964). Sdlg. 59-30. TB 36" M. O1P."Light pink self; pink beard. 38-57 X 57-40., Cooley '1964. HM 1965." (The preceding information is from the American Iris Society Check List data base.) In today's world of modern irises this is considered a historic or antique iris; one well worth the time to grow! For those of us who wonder about the 'good ole days' in iris breeding, Heartbreaker conjures up images of what an early pink iris looked like. This is one of the finest light pink historic irises I've seen (and grow). It is a pure classic in form, color and beauty! Very, very nice! Exceptionally hardy and relatively carefree here (5a/b).
