INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1981 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A gift from the gods! An aristocratic Iris, this pure white dazzler distinguishes itself as the best branched white Iris with a multitude of buds. Its specialty is a superlative exhibition stalk opening many, many florets simultaneously—Grand Champion on the show bench. With parents like Christmas Time, Tufted Cloud and Winter Olympics it is bound to be a winner. An elgegant beuaty!
