From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967 Introducing CROWNING TOUCH: (CELESTIAL SNOW X IVORY LACE). 38". A heavily ruffled and fluted pure white with a bright lemon yellow beard. Distinctive personality. $30.00. Brown's Iris Garden.
When I visited Alta Brown's garden at Kirkland, Washington, in 1966, I discovered two white irises that are "must-haves" for our gardens. SILVER WEDDING which was being introduced that year was simply gorgeous. I had never seen a more intensely ruffled and fluted white iris until I spotted seedling 61-12, since named CROWNING TOUCH. Here was another white iris that was extremely beautiful. It had the added quality of having better branching than SILVER WEDDING. But neither of these two irises should be overlooked if you wish to grow some of the outstanding new white irises. [Larry Harder, “My White Want List,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 188 (January 1968): 26.]
