TB 36″ M W1

From Quality Gardens catalog for 1931: “This new white is of different parentage than Purissima and is entirely different in style and effect and well worth being named for California’s great snow-capped peak. The stalks are well, but highly branched, and bear the fine flowers proudly aloft. They are pure white, with faint amber reticulations on the haft and are of excellent substance. At first not hardy here, but we believe we have thoroughly acclimated our stock.”

From Carl Salbach Catalog 1929 ” Shasta (Mohr-Mitchell) 1927. This new white of different parentage than Purissima is also en tirely distinct in style and effect and well worthy of being named for California’s great white-capped mountain. The 40-inch stalks which are well but high branched, bear the magnificent flowers proudly aloft. These are snow white, with a few faint amber reticulations on the haft and are of fine form and excellent substance. It blooms late with us so was not seen by the early visitors who so admired Purissima $5.00.”

From Carl Salbach’s catalog for 1934: “This new white of different parentage than Purissima on also entirely distinct in style and effect and well worthy of being named for California’s great white-capped mountain. The 36″ stalks are well but high branched. Free flowering and unexcelled in mass planting.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1936: “Shasta is a warm white with a flesh-pink undertone.”
