Awaiting original catalog description.
Another distinctive blue-white was one Dr. Loomis called "Blue Throat," which had much blue in the heart of the flower. It had lovely form with wide ruffled petals…and good substance. We liked it very much. [Winegar, Nina N. (1949). Iris Time in the Rockies, American Iris Society Bulletin 116(January 1950), 70.]
