New Zealand Siberian Iris 'ERNIE'S PINK'

A recent released great looking lavender pink New Zealand Siberian registration that shows good form. Bev and Noel Lapham from Mossburn Iris Garden recently informed me "'Ernie's Pink' was given to us by the late Ernie Davis, grown from seed gifted to him and the parentage is unknown. It is much admired by visitors to our garden so we decided to register it in his memory."
Available exclusively from Mossburn Iris Gardens so make sure this variety is on your order list for an April delivery.

    It is only available in New Zealand at the moment but you could try the variety Iris sibirica LAVENDELWEIN which is available at http://www.tamberg.homepage.t-online.de/homep36e.htm and there are many others there that might take your fancy.

  3. Are they sure this is a sib? Sure looks like a PCI to me. If it is a sib it's phenomenal and a huge color advance.
