TB. Late midseason bloom. Color Class WW. ‘Venus de Milo’ x white seedling. Douglas, Fairmount 1941. Honorable Mention 1941.
Fairmount Gardens Catalog, 1042/1943 A fitting name for a captivating iris. We have many fine white irises, but Titian Lady is a fascinating distinct variant from all other whites on account of the full thick beard of Titian red (nearest color in Ridgway, Shrimp red). The standards are broad and roundly domed of purest sparkling white. The falls are very arched and flaring of the same pure white with no reticulations at the haft to mar their immaculate beauty. Classically formed, trim, and well branched with strong substance, this iris has great individuality and too much emphasis cannot be given to the beauty of color contrast between this frosty pure white and the intense Titian beard.
