From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing COTTON BWSSOM - Sdlg. M197-8 (Pamela Ann x Merry Sunlight). Immaculate white. Beautifully formed flower. Wide, almost horizontal falls are ruffled. White beard. A really fine SDB. $5.00. Bennett Jones.
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.]
