From Sindt Irises catalog, 1983: FLAKES. Miniature Dwarf Bearded (David Sindt 1983) Purest crystalline white with a slight hint of an equally pure lemon at the hafts, each flower is fluted or slightly lacinated giving an unusual lacy effect, as delicate and ephemeral as a snowflake. These dainty FLAKES nestle among grassy leaves less than one cm wide which, though taller than the flowers, do not hide them but instead recall some of the lovely albino dwarf crested irises. Absolutely unique, this was the best seedling of the 1982 Iris Society of Minnesota Early Show. 12 cm tall, leaves to 15 cm. Seedling 315. (Tic Tac X Quip). EC 1982. $12.00
