INTERSTING INFO: From the 1942 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: The outstanding flaring white. As unique in form as it is pure in color, tall snow white. One of the most beautiful white iris. The pronounced flare of the stiffly-substances flower reminds one of a piece of stiffly starched material. Flowers are very large, nicely proportioned giving the flower the feeling of elaborate styling. A lavish gold throat regally caps its pure beauty. Named after St. Paul's annual Winter Carnival, the Mardi Gras of the Northwest. Very hardy.
