From the 1962 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Here we have a very personable iris. A pure white iris of broad form and crisp, flaring falls with the center of each fall displaying an area about the size of a 25¢ piece heavily penciled in a near turquoise blue, the color markings becoming almost solid. Blooming between the dwarfs and the tall bearded and inheriting the finer qualities from both races from which it is descended, it blooms with a great many stems, well branched.
