COTTON BLOSSOM (Jones '70)-Here is a bit of warm white perfection of flower form and plant that is a joy to the grower and an envy to the hybridizer. It is the new standard of flower form possible in standard dwarfs. [Joe Gatty, “A Median Review,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, Vol. 55, No. 214 (July 1974): 55.]
