From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1948: “Alabaster-white; perfection in color and form. In the originator’s garden it grew to four feet in height with magnificent branching. Slightly ruffled, it bears some resemblance to Helen McGregor in form. Beard is light yellow and does not contrast with the pure white effect.”

From DeForest’s Irisnoll catalog for 1948: “An iris of all-around excellence. White, of pleasing form on well-branched stalk. In 1947, it bloomed early, through midseason, and on into late. We were delighted with it.”

From Lyon’s Irisland catalog for 1949: Exquisitely ruffled pure, cool white, large, broad petaled flowers with a decided sheen that makes this one of the loveliest of the white iris. The flowers are smooth in texture and have fine substance. They are well spaced on beautifully branched stalks. Certainly a well worthwhile addition to any garden.”
