Large mauve tepals have mauve tips with a raspberry tint which is also noticeable in veins. The flowers are gappy when fully developed. White filaments with pale yellow anthers. The tepals bend down at the side and the tips. 'Iunost' is the result of 'cocktail breeding' , 'Candida' x 'Kermesina', 'Lawsoniana' and C integrifolia and is reckoned by some to be one of the best 'pink' types. The name means 'youth'.
