From Fleur De Lis Gardens catagog, 1966: CLOUD COUNTRY (Tompkins '66) M.L. 45 in. (Rumbling Thunder x Galilee). A majestic new Iris of white, or near white, this is a magnificently formed and finished flower of ultra thick substance and smooth icy finish with every petal of the precisely domed standards and flaring falls perfectly and beautifully ruffled . The color is pearly, cloud white with just a hint of pale greenish blue throughout. A heavy beard of pale lime yellow accents its beauty. Strong, wonderfully branched stalks with perfect placement make this cool beauty a sure fire bet for the showbench as well as the garden. No. 63-8. Net $25.00.
