(SPEC) Iris reticulata var. Luteo-Alba

1908, Chapman

Iris reticulata var. Luteo-Alba ( noted by F. Herbert Chapman, 1908) in notes Iris luteo-alba.— This little plant is now-in flower with me, and I think that if I had been able to include it in my group at the Royal Horticultural Society's meeting on the 3rd inst. it would have caused much interest. Roughly speaking, it is a white reticulata, so slightly-shaded with cream and pale blue as for these colours to be scarcely noticeable, except on close inspection. It is smaller and dwarfer, too, than the reticulata type, and altogether a somewhat insignificant flower ; but the unique colour makes, it of great interest to lovers of this section. — F. Herbert Chapman, Rye.
