■(TB) 'Dreamy'

1953, Linse

'Dreamy' (Jack Linse, R. 1951). TB, 37" (94 cm), Midseason to late bloom. Color Class-W1, White self, heavily crinkled. 'Snow Flurry' x 'Cloud Castle'. Easy Breeze 1953. HM 1956; JC 1956, 1957.

See below:


From Easy Breeze Gardens catalog, 1953: DREAMY (Linse 1953) Midseason to late. 38". Truly something new under the sun! A white slightly reminiscent of Spanish Peaks, without the droop of that fine variety, it is perhaps even larger and has a similar white beard, but here the similarity ends. The well-held, flaring and very ruffled blooms have a texture that defies my powers of description. A prominent irisarian suggested that it looked like freshly popped popcorn, while another suggested it be named Crinkles, and in a regional bulletin nominated it the most outstanding thing in the garden. It is a magnificent grower with sturdy erect stalks that will not blow over. A full sister to the lovely Cascadian, equally worthy, and entirely distinct. Breeding, Snow Flurry ex Cloud Castle. Breeders, if you can incorporate this texture into flowers of other coloring, you'll have something! I have had no time to work with it. Each $20.00.
From Iris Test Garden catalog, 1955: DREAMY. Linse, 1953). A mammoth sized white; well branched stalks were one inch in diameter here. Looks like large grain of exploded pop corn. As white as the Spanish Peaks; with white beard. Breeding: Snow Flurry x Cloud Castle. Very heavy textured and a knock-out. We hope we have enough to go around. Will sell on sight. $4.50.
