From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1969 (its introductory catalog) “This neatly ruffled,lovely formed pure unblemished white is as appealing as freshly fallen snow. A scintillating white beauty with wonderful branched stems, often 4 perfect flowers are in full bloom at the same time. We selected this white especially for purity of color,extreme vigor and unexcelled exhibition qualities. There is an icy sparkling finish to its virginal purity. A free growing plant, a choice beauty for your iris garden.”

From Schreiner’s iris Lover’s catalog for 1973: “Neatly ruffled, lovely formed, unblemished white. As appealing as freshly fallen snow. Wonderful branched stems … often 4 perfect blooms at the same time. Vigorous grower, unexcelled for exhibition.”
