From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: CHRISTMAS SNOW (Austin '63) 33". A beautifully ruffled pure white of splendid flaring form and unbeatable substance; set off by bright yellow beard. Sometimes lightly horned. Emerges from pale blue buds. This is the nearest we have to a winter-blooming Snow Flurry. A heavy re-bloomer with about 90% of the rhizomes re-blooming starting in early December and continuing on to Christmas where severe freezes do not occur. Superb for use near Christmas tree. Ball Gown X Horned Lace. Reg. $20; on $25 order $7.95.
