| From Schreiner's catalog, 1947: ALADDIN'S WISH (Murawska 1945) M . 36". Something new- a singularly different iris, white brushed blue . The color is brushed on as if with blue chalk rather than blended. The cream color radiates through the flower like the first gentle rays of the sun. Blooms are very large, most unusual and lovely. A real innovation in an original flower, different from any other iris. $8.00.
| From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1949: ALADDIN'S WISH (Murawska) An unusual flower which is like a porcelain on which a coating of blue has been superimposed on pale cream and then in the heating the blue color has become thin along the veins and in areas about the bases of the standards and falls. It can be used to advantage in flower arrangements, especially with solid colors. 3 feet. $3.00; 3 for $7.50.
