Full Description

TB ML W8D

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1948: “Massive white Plicata, entirely different from all others. It has a broad band of wine-purple stitching at the edges of enormous flaring falls, and this same color is repeated in the standards. The whole flower is slightly ruffled. A thoroughly fine iris in every way, and a husky grower.”

From Marble Iris Gardens catalog for 1952: “A great white plicata with a broad border of white-purple stitching on standards and falls. The entire flower is slightly ruffled and a thoroughly fine Iris in every way. It is very gay and colorful and we are happy to recommend it.”
