INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1965 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: For the past few years, iris fanciers ahve been extolling the new amoenas with pale blue falls created by Mr. Cook. Whole Cloth is distinct and attractive. Clear opaque white standards, very pure and very rigidly upright and solid, very smooth, medium light blue falls. The blue is the color of Blue Rhythm, its antecedent. Well branched stalks.
