From Schreiner’s catalog, 1969: ERMINE ROBE (Schreiner 1969) ML. 38" $15.00. This neatly ruffled, lovely formed, pure, unblemished white is as appealing as freshly fallen snow. A scintillating white beauty with wonderful branched stems--often 4 perfect flowers are in full bloom at the same time. We selected this white especially for purity of color, extreme vigor, and unexcelled exhibition qualities. There is an icy, sparkling finish to its virginal purity. A free growing plant; a choice beauty for your iris garden. #A202-l.
