From Carl Salbach catalog 1937: BRIDAL VEIL (Mitchell 1936). (Formerly Carissima). Easily the most delicately beautiful white since the introduction of Purissima and has so little mesopotamica or Kashmir White blood in its make-up that its hardiness is practically assured. Not in competition with Snow King, as Bridal Veil is a dainty variety, perfect in form, beautiful in its clarity, which is enhanced by the clear, but tiny gold edging at the haft. Occasionally one bloom to a stalk flowers with only two standards-otherwise the price would be at least twice as high. Despite this freak, we feel that Bridal Veil, without question, ranks with Purissima and Snow King, as one of. the three fine st whites in existence. Early mid-season. 36-inch. $7.50.
Bridal Veil. Had one branch starting 8 inches from the ground. One of the beautiful new whites with a gleaming yellow heart. Mrs. Herman E. Lewis, "Varietal Notes 1938", A.I.S. Bulletin 72 (January 1939): 11.
