| Awaiting original catalog description
| MT. VERNON (Washington 1941) M. A very clear white self of unusually fine form and glistening substance and entirely different from 'Alpha' or 'Omega' with the blooming season between the two. The standards are highly domed and have a pronounced midrib that adds to firmness of the flower. The falls are half flaring and broad and full at the throat. Pale yellow beard. No other color or reticulations mar this firm smoothly finished flower. A color picture of this iris won first prize in the A. I. S. colored slide contest of 1941. Sturdy stalks and good branching. 36 in. $7.50 [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, Introductions for 1941. Summer 1942-Spring 1943].
