As flower opens it is often nearly normal, but within a day or two many flowers flatten out so both standards and falls are nearly horizontal. These immense flowers sometimes have a spread up to 9 inches. Unique flat Iris blooms ideal for shallow container. Either flat or in normal form marbled coloring is exquisite. A heavy bloomer. All six petals have beards. In great demand for corsages, for which it is simply superb. A splendid seed setter. (Snow Flurry X Capitola). Regularly $3.00; on $10 order $1.95; on $25 order $1.80.
