References:

From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: FRANCES CRAIG (Craig '52) M 40"(Snow Flurry X Capitola). Tom Craig really knew what he was doing when he named this charming flower, for if it could talk we feel sure it would reflect further the wit and personality of the Lady known as 'Fran'. The steady stream of awards it has won since it was first shown speaks most eloquently in its favor. Oh! the color? Tom's description 'grayed lavender self' gives little hint of its great beauty. Increases rapidly.H.C. '51 - H.M. '53 - A.M. '54. $10.00
From Easy Breeze Gardens catalog, 1955: FRANCES CRAIG (Craig '52) 40". HM '53. Craig's crowning achievement in the Mohr line. A huge, excellently formed iris of powder blue. Absolutely tops. $10.00
