ALPHA (Washington 1941) E. For many years we have needed in our gardens a better early flowering white of large size, good form and substance, and this iris fills that need. The standards are pure white, broad and very roundly domed. The arched and semi-flarmg falls are very broad and of the same pure white. Beard pale yellow. A glistening white of rounded form, heavy substance and excellent branching. The best early flowering white. 36 in.
