From the 1968 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A truly entrancing, magnificent, wonderful cream colored iris with a near lemon-ice cast. Large, globular blooms, heavy, crisp substanced flowers on ideal stems which are well branched and perfectly proportioned. Unequivocally one of the most handsome of the new cream varieties. Cream iris, along with the light yellows, provide those "pools of moonlight" so entrancing, and so essential, in an iris garden. Here's a winner.
For unknown reasons, this photograph of Citron Creme was never published in any Iris Lover's catalog. This photo is sourced from the original film taked by Robert Schreiner.
