References:

Dr. Graves honored the nearby town of Boscawen with Lady Boscawen, wife of Admiral Lord Boscawen for whom the town was named.
From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1946: LADY BOSCAWEN (Graves 1946) M. Frilled and ruffled as a debutante's first party dress, this very pure white seems to be even more lovely than the previous whites from Dr. Graves. A very large clear white self with broad fluted standards and extremely flaring falls delightfully ruffled at the edges. The substance is strong and firm and the flowers are well spaced on tall graceful stalks. An iris that has many fine qualities and always impresses one with its purity of color and beauty of form. Thoroughly hardy, having withstood many trying winters. H. C., A. I. S. 1943. 42 in. $15.
