See below:


From Iris Test Garden catalog, 1955: WHITE RUFFLES. (C. Taylor, 1947). Words cannot convey the beauty of this huge ruffled warm white iris. The extra large blooms are wide petaled and of extra heavy substance and are poised on very tall well-branched stems in excellent proportion to their size. A vigorous grower. An iris you will cherish. 60 inches. Midseason. H.M., A.I.S. 1947. $2.50.
From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1955: WHITE RUFFLES (Taylor)-H.M., A.I.S. '47. This iris has been cursed by a reputation for tenderness it has evidently not deserved, as reports have come in from many of the coldest sections this year and told of the great success this iris has been. It is unfortunate that so many have been denied the joy of this sumptuous flower with its gracefully ruffled, broad and flaring petals and statuesque bearing. A magnificent garden specimen. 38 in. $2.50.
