From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1963: LEOLA FRAIM 58-1 (E. and A. Watkins 1963) M.L. Beauty and distinction are united in this fascinating white iris that was named for a talented and charming friend. The pure white standards are closely domed and firmly held by the strong midrib with broad ruffling on the borders. The arched and flaring white falls have neatly crimped edges with delicate pink venations around the coral pink beard. The symmetry of form complimented by the pink beard make this a very lovely iris that was awarded a High Commendation in 1961. Beautifully branched with long season of bloom. Salmon Shell x May Hall. 38 in. $20.00
