| MOUNT WASHINGTON (Essig 1937). Huge and tall, this remarkable iris is so outstanding that it automatically earns for itself a notch among the best whites, ranking, in our estimation, as one of the finest whites. Very pure and clear. Mount Washington is a pure warm white with golden beard, attractive haft markings of gold, and semi-flaring falls. The form is halfway between that of Purissima and Easter Morn—most pleasing. Even greater size than the latter, and much taller. Has a most pleasing odor, similar to that of wild plum. Heavy substance; well branched. Mid season. 50-inch. $20.00. [Carl Salbach iris, 1938]
