From AIS Bulletin #249 April 1983 Introducing SUMMER SNOW (The New Hybrid Vesper Iris) From X Pardancanda norrisii breeding, Summer Snow is the first of the new "Hybrid Vesper Iris" to be named, registered and introduced. A chance seedling, this immaculately beautiful flower of perfect iris form is dazzling in its snowy whiteness. A touch of lemon on the styles warms its heart.

Hardy and drought tolerant. Thrives in ordinary soil in full sun or part shade. Lovely underplanted with annuals or perennials. Summer Snow blooms for many weeks in July and August. Bright green iris type foliage is attractive all summer. Will bloom the first year if planted in the spring. Plants available spring and fall. Price: $10.00 each or 3 for $25.00 (customer limit). George Bush.
