From Fleur De Lis Garden catalog 1956: CORPORAL MARY (Graves 1949) M. 38 in.(Snow Carnival x K. Larmon). A very large, broad petaled flower of deep cream with a white area in the center of the falls. Very heavy substance. 2.00.
"When we made our trek to Sioux City in 1950 I lost my heart to two lovely visitors in Mrs. Whiting's garden—Corporal Mary and Northwestern. I now have them both and if this winter hurts them I don't know how I win bear it. I have always loved Dr. Graves' Lady Louise and it has performed beautifully for me, but I think Corporal Mary is even more appealing." Mrs. Leo Reynolds (Memphis, Tenn.), “Notes from Region 7,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 125 (April 1952): 58.
