This impressive descendent of Poem of Ecstasy has peach pink standards and wide ruffled lavender falls with a 1/4" rosy pink band. With later sporadic summer blooms, the band may blend inward, reminiscent of watered silk. Peach orange beards with a white base are frosted with blue at the ends. Florentine Silk was a favorite guest Iris at the AIS 2006 Convention in Oregon.
