From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: MARBLED SNOW (Austin '61) E-40". Will appeal to those who are seeking something really different & distinctive in Iris, for this combines the beautiful, intense marbling of my Clementina with unique crinkled petals of Zua. A delicate blue-white, heavily marbled in deep lavender. One of rare Regeliabreds I obtained by using pollen of Regelia Orestes on Snow Flurry. Reg. $3.00; on $10 order $1.95; on $25 order $1.50; 3 for $4.05.
