From AIS Bulletin #173, April 1964, Introducing For 1964 by Cliff Benson: ARCTIC FURY-Henry Shaw x Helen Traubel. A large, full bodied, semi-flared ruffled pure white. Substance is heavy; stalks are sturdy and well branched. M. 36"; HC '60. Net $25.00.
Clifford Benson's ARCTIC FURY '64 has the roundest and widest fall of any of the new white irises. The domed standards are as full as the falls so adds its effect to the flower form. This sometimes is a little bunched when more than three flowers are open because spacing of the branches is not entirely adequate. [Larry Harder, “My White Want List,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 188 (January 1968): 25.]
