From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1953: FLORA WHITING. Whiting 1953. No. 4225 ((MISSOURI X GLORIOLE) X BELMONT). Midseason to late, 40 inches. This tall blue iris has great poise and charm. A true self of warm lobelia blue, with smooth hafts and white beards. Somewhat darker than BLUE RHYTHM it is of distinctly different form, having widely flaring falls. They are only distantly related through a great grand—parent—SENSATION. The flowers are large, the branching excellent, the growth robust. Our daughter, Flora, chose it as her favorite among the seedlings a few years ago and the name was registered. In 1950 it was given an H. C. $10.00.
