From AIS Bulletin #285 April 1992 Introducing Alpine Summit (Lyle Fort '92\ TB, 35", M. (7-10 buds), Seedling No. 86-141-B. After years of looking for a large, pure white iris, we happened upon this impressive flower growing in our own garden. A ruffled, pristine white self that retains all the qualities of its notorious parent, Wide Hips, having very large well-proportioned flowers with overlapping falls. Gifted with a cool sweet fragrance that carries you to the top of the snow-covered Alps. $30.00. Fort Iris Gardens.
