Full Description

TB 36″ E-M

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1982: “The bouncy ruffles of this white Iris capture that blowing crystalline iridescence of new snow that so warms a skier’s heart. It will similarly delight your garden at Iris time. Here we have a pure ruffled white – nothing else – with good sized 6 inch florets opening several blossoms at the same time. Most spectacularly what an ideally branched stem! See our front cover illustration for this sure fire winner – 3 branches with 9 buds. There are many fine white Iris but this winter wonderland will surely rival any of them.”
