From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1948: FRANK DRAKE (Grant 1947) M. L. Some iris depend on color for their beauty, others on perfection of form and finish, and this one belongs in the latter class, for it is an iris with the heavy smooth substance and finish of marble. A cool reverse bicolor with standards of Reed yellow (Ridgway) completely domed and very firmly held. The very flaring falls are pure white with a generous overlay of Chartreuse gold surrounding the beard of the same color which is lightly tipped with white. Well branched and vigorous growth. 39 in. $15.00.
