From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1948: DIXIE BELLE (Milliken) A large ruffled white iris with yellow hafts and beard. It is not related to Snow Flurry nor does it resemble Snow Flurry. The ruffling or corrugation is full and deep, running the entire length of the falls. The petals seem translucent and thin and one might think that such flowers would be the first to collapse in a heavy rain. On the contrary there are few kinds which stand up so well in the rain. The branching is good so that there is no crowding and the plant increases well. 3 feet. $8.00.
