■(SDB) 'Snow Maiden'

1935, Chadwick

'Snow Maiden' (L. T. Chadwick, R. 1935) DB. Early bloom. Color Code-WW.

See below:


From Carl Salbach catalog 1936: Snow Maiden. A striking pure white intermediate which we introduced to America last year. Being bred in Canada, it is naturally a good doer in even the severest climates. Pure white in color, on ten-inch stems, its extreme floriferousness results in a solid mass of bloom resembling a drift of new snow. As striking a border planting as can be imagined. One of the very earliest. 75c; 3 for $2.00.
