INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1959 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This Iris might be called a white Harbor Blue since it inherits the stalwart stem and candelabra branching of its famous progenitor, but it goes even farther, its immense blooms of wonderful substance, with crisp, clean-cut, flaring form having even wider falls but a rich, glowing, glossy milk-white. A heavy bloomer that often has three or four of its giant sculptured blooms open at once per stem.
