INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1977 Schreiner’s Iris Lover's Catalog: Truly a paragon of beauty! Here is a pure snowy white that has edging on the petals as scalloped and feather-laced as a freshly fallen snowflake. Its rigid closed standards and semi-flaring falls deftly sport just a touch of lemon-yellow deep in the center of the flower and a lemon-yellow beard. The fluffy, white flower has splendid substance with fine, rigid, nicely branched stems—3 branches and 9 buds per stem. This beautifully ruffled creation is both vigorous and a good grower.
