ALPINE PLUMES (Plough '72) is another tall, graceful white that showed up well in many gardens. For the exhibitor this is a good show iris-its well branched stalk carries the pure white blossoms very gracefully. Not a large flower, but in perfect proportion. James McWhirter, “Reflections and Anticipations,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, Vol. 57, No. 221 (April 1976): 8.]
