From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1983: “Have you been looking for the “all-whitest” iris? Here is a new one that should fit the bill. The beards are a lemon-white and the bloom is fluted all around. There is some flare in the falls, but the whole is very ruffly with nine buds to each 3-branch stalk.” ((Portrait of Larrie x Carriage Trade) X sib).
From Schreiners Iris Lovers Catalog 1998: “Large and generously ruffled, Skating Party is a pristine white with lemon tinted beards.An ideal iris for the white tinted garden. HM ’85, AM ’89”
