From Kenwood Iris Gardens (Emigholz) catalog 1933: ICY GLOW (Emig. 1933)—5". For the last two years a good white and yellow pumila bicolor seedling had attracted attention. Among a group of 80 varieties, blooming this year, this Iris was still distinctive, so it has been named and introduced. It has good form and substance. S. snow white with a faint greenish cast when opening, midrib green, and light brownish reticulations at the claw. F. pyrethrum yellow, with a gold glint in the center of the falls, pale wire edge. Haft white with coppery yellow reticulations. Beard white. The flowers measure from tip to tip. The form is similar to that of Orange Queen, but the divisions are a trifle wider. The whole flower has a cool appearance, and a good carrying color. As we have sufficient stock, will be able to introduce it at a moderate price. $2.00.
