Also listed in the following nursery catalogs: Fairmount 1946

See below:



From the Dykes catalog: A very large white flower of a good shape with a yellow beard. The standards are particularly bold. A very erect strong grower.
Gudrun: (Dykes). Flowers large—fine substance, blooming season medium length. While flowers are bunched at top of stalk it is well worth having. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 17.]
GUDRUN (Dykes), in good form. [G. L. Pilkington, "Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 74 (July 1939): 32.]  
Gudrun is an enormous flower of lustrous, shining whiteness heavily marked chrome yellow on the haft, stunning in its size and opulence, yet for all its grandeur presenting an untidy, rumpled appearance. The broad falls hang in folds and the standards are open. I'll never be without it, just the same. [Lila McCombs, “A Critical Evaluation of Older Irises”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 57.]
