From Biltmore Nurseries ‘The Iris Catalog” 1912: “White and lavender always are attractive; but here, as Nature blends them, they reach the height of their charm. The standards are white softly shaded with lavender, and the falls are a delicate lavender marked irregularly along the edges. Connoisseurs declare Bridesmaid should be in every collection'”
From Michell”s Bulbs, 1922: “White, shaded silvery blue”.
