I may have mentioned Beverly Sills before. Here is how this iris is described on the Shreiner's webpage:
Exciting coral pink all over,
Beverly Sills is one of the most talked about and sought-after pink Iris of all time.
She is THE BEST Pink iris, according to almost everybody. I have several pinks, but have wanted this famous and supposedly fabulous iris.
So I bought one, and it was NOT Beverly Sills.
Somebody made a mistake somewhere.
The iris I bought labeled Beverly Sills was NOT even PINK.
Oh well. Sometimes that happens, and so, last year, I tried again,
and bought another "Beverly Sills"... imposter!
Although I will have to say, this light lavender with tangerine beard (name???) is very attractive.
Maybe I'll try again in a few years, and buy another iris labeled 'Beverly Sills.'
