Full Description

TB 40″ E

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1957: “At last we have enough plants of this snow-white Iris with the flaming beard to introduce it. Mr. Hall has worked for several years in an effort to bring out a faultless white with the tangerine beard so closely associated with the flamingo-pinks. And here we have it! The flowers are large, the stiff stems reach four feet, and the thick petals are as clean and white as a sheet. Every judge who has seen this has been enthusiastic about it.”

From Marble Iris Gardens catalog for 1962: “A fine name for a fine Iris from the famous Hall gardens. A beautiful frosty snow-white bloom set off by a brilliant tangerine-red beard that is very unusual. The large flowers with thick petals are carried by strong sturdy stems that reach a height of four feet.”
