NORTH STAR (Washington 1940) M. L. A flaring blue white self with such firm sparkling substance that the whole flower seems dusted with glistening frost crystals. The finely domed standards are strong and firm, the broad falls arch and flare in perfect proportion to form a particularly well balanced flower. Beard pale yellow tipped white. The splendid four way branched stalk and very weather resistant qualities of this cool white iris make it a very important addition to this class. 38 in. $4.00. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, A Selected List of Tall Bearded Iris. Summer 1942-Spring 1943].
