From AIS Bulletin #169, April 1963. Introducing DISTANT PEAK (Z. G. Benson '63). Midseason, 35", (First Violet x Whole Cloth). Closed, snowy white standards topping blue-violet falls on this iris reminds one of a distant snow-covered peak. Not as deep in color or as ruffled as its sister seedling MAIN ATTRACTION, but this is still an outstanding iris in its own right. Clarity of color, flaring falls, good branching and substance also made this a showstopper at Topeka in the Brizendines' gardens under number 3-27-2. 16 votes for H.C. '62. Net $25.00. Z. Benson.
