Snoqualmie

Brehm, R&I 1938

TB 36″ M W4

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1941: “Good cream toned irises are becoming very popular and here we have one of the very best. Of thick and leathery texture, large in size and with flaring falls, the color is an even deep cream. A very tall and fine iris in every way.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “One of the very best cream iris. It reminds one of thick Jersey cream and like this luscious cream which seems to have so much body, this iris is heavily substanced.”

From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog for 1951: “Long a fine dependable cream.”

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1945: “Just like rich thick cream. Flowers of heavy texture, flaring, large, and growing quite tall.”

From Marble Iris Gardens catalog for 1952: “Very rich pure cream Iris of leathery texture is soft in color yet rich enough to blend with the reds and blues in your garden. It is very hardy and free blooming.”
