Full Description

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1947: “A glistening pure white with gracefully waved arched standards and delicately ruffled semi-flaring falls.”

From Walter Marx’s Gardens catalog for 1948: “For those who want the purest white iris at a reasonable price. Large graceful flowers without a trace of foreign color. There is no veining on the hafts and even the beard is white.

(San Francisco X sdlg), HM 1938, AM 1940.
Considered one of the earliest examples of the glaciata pattern.
