BRITONESS. Pale lemon-cream, of Moonlight derivation. This flower was blooming magnificently in the Schriener garden in St. Paul last June, and was a favorite of Robert Schriener as well as myself. A very new introduction from England which has had little publicity, but is deserving of a place among the iris aristocracy. Blossoms of great size, slightly ruffled, splendid stem and branching habit. Each $4.00 [Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932] Listed as "Brittoness" in this catalog.
