References:

From Glen Road Iris Gardens catalog, 1928: SEA FOAM (Sturt. 192S) White, the falls tinged with Sea Foam yellow. It flowers with the last Intermediates but because of its fine substance lasts well into the Pogon iris season. I checked the first flower and it did not fade until the end of the fourth day; over 2 ft. 5.00.
