From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1951: FROST GLINT, Whiting 1951. No 4316 (VATICAN PURPLE X WEST POINT). Midseasonto late, 34 inches. A cold blue white iris that has a most intriguing form and amazingly heavy substance. The flowers are large with closely domed, ruffled standards and widely flaring, heavily ruffled falls, The newly opened blooms are quite blue toned, clearing to near white later, and lasting for days. The stalks are strong and adequately branched. Even so, the huge, heavy blooms sometimes cause the stalks to lean unless planted in full sun. Many visitors, including judges have urged us to introduce it inspite of this occasional deflection. The plants are very robust and free with bloom and increase. $10.00.
From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: FROST GLINT (Whiting 1951) M. l. 35 in. (Vatican Purple x West Point). A very large white of choice form. The flowers open a cold blue white that later clears to pure white and the substance is so heavy that the individual blooms last for several days. Standards are well domed and ruffled and the falls flare widely and have a very heavy ruffling. H. M. 1951. 1.00.
