INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1984 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A vision of heaven's ecstasy! This virginally pure ice cream-white has standards that are artistically arched and heavily substanced. Most beatific of all she is replete with finely wrought laced edges which even extend to the crests and heart of the flower. Lady Madonna produces quantities of lofty spire-like stems each with three branches and a complement of 5 buds. Perfection of individual florets and heavy consistency of performance are the attributes here. Something new!
