From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: CRISPETTE (Schreiner 1954) Each 7.5O. The name says it. This orchid iris of great beauty is not only a color gem, whether viewed in the landscape scene or in the intimate atmosphere of a home arrangement. Its fluted broadly proportioned petals with their lacy edging stand up fresh and immaculate as long as the flower lasts. Earlymidseason. 34 inches.
From Wallace Iris Gardens catalog 1955: CRISPETIE - (Schreiner '54) EM. 34 in. Of ideal form and garden habit is this broadly proportioned color gem whose fluted petals and lacy edging create a lilting, billowy effect. The deep orchid color carries extremely well, adding a new note to the garden refrain. Crispette is a sturdy iris as well as a landscape standout. This iris is a true orchid of great beauty. SDG.No. G319-1. NET $15.00.
