Full Description

TB 40″ ML

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1962: “A thrilling, gorgeous swan white. The bloom is heavy substansed with charming ruffling and the form is finely sculptured. Possesses the beauty of a classic ballet. The chiseled, flaring florets, with the white tipped beard, are perfection itself. A vision of floral beauty.”
