From Schreiner’s catalog, 1969: FAIRY MAGIC (Schreiner 1969) E. 34" $20.00. The first time we saw this iris in our trial rows we were delighted with its fairy-like, magical appeal. It has likewise stood the test of several seasons appraisal. Immaculate whiteness and refined form are a perfect setting for the dainty, delicate, dew drop orchid which suffuses the falls of this charming amoena. An exquisite, refined iris done with the delicacy of an artist's stroke. A gem for the discriminating ris fancier. Sdlg. #Yl744-CC.
