(TB) 'Snow Goose'

1937, Washington

'Snow Goose' (Thomas Washington, R. 1937) TB.

SNOW GOOSE (Washington 1937) The most distinctive silvery white iris that I have seen. When the flower first unfolds it has a distinct blue cast, rapidly changing to an opaque cool white. The standards are very broad and form a perfect dome, the falls are very flaring with faint buff markings in the throat, the styles are white and pale cream beard. This iris has a dignity and beauty that is most impressive. 40 in. $17.50. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, Introductions for 1938, Catalog, Summer 1938-Spring 1939]
