From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1983: “Where cold water meets ice… a unique color pattern which contrasts a surprising deeper shade of lavender blue in the standards over pale whitish tints in the pert flaring falls. A hybridizing miracle… the bluest standards yet in this unique color class. Edge Of Winter is the product of generations of attempts harkening back to the subtle Iris Imbricata ancestry in Dr. Branch’s Blue Fantasy. Excellent form; the floret is fully round with a light airy ruffling. Branched and sturdy weather resistant stems sport 7 to 8 buds each. A real breakthrough! To see is to believe.”
