From AIS Bulletin #216 January 1975 Introducing WINTER'S CHARM. Sdlg. 71-7. BB, 24", ML. There is 1/4 aril blood in this flower, but it will not be introduced as an arilbred because it hasn't enough aril characteristics to win any awards under the new rules put into effect by ASI. I was at a loss to know what to do with it, but so many have convinced me to introduce it under another class. So it will be introduced as a border bearded. Both standards and falls are oyster white; stylearms have bluish cast; beard white tipped blue. 10-12 buds on a well-branched stalk; 2-3 buds per socket. This flower takes its form and branching characteristics from its mother and beard from the pollen parent. Flower is a perfect size for a border. A dependable bloomer each year and fast increaser. Because of this, we are offering it at a very low price. Winter Olympics X Saffron Charm. $12.50. Mount Clare Iris Garden.
From Pleasure Iris Gardens catalog, 1984: WINTER'S CHARM--Sdlg. 71-7, BB, 24", ML. 1/4 aril. Both standards and falls are oyster white, stylearms have bluish cast, beard white tipped blue. Winter Olympics x Saffrom Charm. HM 1976. $3.00.
