(Margie Valenzuela, 2013) Seedling KDSG-06-01 (M-ML) 36" Tall, TB. A nice flow of colors in this beauty. It begins with a nice light peachy-org with hints of pink and orchid in the standards. The hafts are orange-pink, then it begins to blend to pink with a richer pink near the bottom of the falls with slightly lighter "crinkle-cut" edges and center. Makes a wonderful clump! Good substance and a great grower too.

It's lighter in color just under the beard and around the edges on the falls. Vigorous, healthy, and makes a stunning clump!

(Margie Valenzuela, 2013) Seedling BB4-PL (EM-M) 35-36" Tall, TB. This wonderfully formed iris with its ruffles and a touch of lace, has an enticing blend of pale pink through out the standards with near white edges. The even more entrancing falls mix it's blend together with shades of pink-orchid, to pink, to peach pink. Gold-like veining comes close to the beard working towards a blend of gold tones on it's shoulders. The deep rich orange beard is its' beacon of light. An iris sure to please.

(Margie Valenzuela, 2013) Seedling SQC-07-J (M-ML) 36-37" Tall TB. This richly-colored deep purple beauty often has 3 blooms opened at once. The lighting can play tricks on the rich purple standards making them look lighter at times, over deep rich falls that draw your attention to the white spray markings at the half and on the shoulders. The beard is multi-colored mustard, white, and purple. Superb growth, good substance and branching, a real eye-catcher!

Parentage: Sambuca x Queens Circle.

Stands. and style arms are a baby blue to light Baby Blue. Falls are lighter. They're a light baby blue to a pale baby blue.

(Margie Valenzuela, 2012) TB, Pamela Rae - is special. I was contacted and asked if I could name an iris after someone's daughter who is now deceased. She wanted a "memorial" for her daughter. So I showed her a couple of seedling photos and she chose this one. I'll be a wonderful and lasting tribute to her life and to her family. Note the pink-peach shoulders accentuating the over-all peach coloring. It's also a healthy, strong plant, a good grower; and a dependable bloomer year after year with laced edges. Such a worthy iris for anyone's garden. Sldg. JTLD-05-3c, TB. 31" Mid-season. Stands. and style arms are peach. Falls are a paler peach and lighter in the center. At the shoulders the color is a deep peach/warm pink w/ short lines near in color.

(Margie Valenzuela, 2012) TB, This unusual iris not only has copper-gold edges, but it's veins are a golden-tan as well. It's height shows off it's colors, and because it can be early blooming it may be one of the first ones to appear. It's play on colors has a way of grabbing one's eye, it's not easily over-looked.

(M. Valenzuela 2009) TB. 38 inches VE-E. Voted (tied) Best Region 15 introduction in 2010 at The Region 15 Trek! Here is a showy iris with billowing ruffled falls. It has great growing habits, great form, and great branching. It's a child of Snowbrook, one can say it's a much improved Snowbrook! Standards are white, with a hint of silver in the shade. The billowy, ruffled falls are a clean white with a purple-plicata edge. Note the striking mulberry-purple plicata markings and veining on the shoulders, and surrounding the beard. The beards are yellow with lavender-purple at the end. The birth of this iris turned out to be magic.

(M. Valenzuela 2009) TB 35 inches EM. This is a true gem indeed! Not only does it have 14 buds per stalk, but it has spots!! Note the unusual light pewter-blue standards with contrasting mustard gold style arms. Falls are white, but the best part are the light pewter-blue spots that become heavier towards the near solid light pewter-blue edges. Even the beards are pewter-blue too tipped mustard gold, bringing it all together.

Parentage: Violet Shimmer x Tanzanian Tangerine
