From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: SNOWY HILLS (Marx 1954) Each $7.50 Snowy white with an all around frilly rim, a feature inherited from the pollen parent, Perfect Peace. Definitely a finer iris of larger size, much better form and greater height. In fact several fanciers consider this to be our best double white to date. Wonderful substance and the frilly or crimped border are highlights of this superior iris. Midseason. 4 feet.
