(TB) 'Miss Willmott'
(Sir Michael Foster
, 1910) TBA. Midseason bloom. Color Class-W1. I. kashmiriana
| From Wing Seed catalog, 1919: MISS WILLMOTT — (Foster.) New. One of the very finest of the Foster seedlings. The flowers are of very heavy texture; S. yellowish-white; F. bluish- white; beard yellow. Very early. Robust and free. Three to three and one-half feet. Sometimes incorrectly called “Kashmir White. $1.00
| From G. G. Whitelegg catalog, 1921: MISS WILLMOTT (Foster). A very good white, sometimes quite pure white, but occasionally flushed palest lavender.
| From Bonnewitz catalog, 1923/24: MISS WILLMOTT (Foster) $2.00. I have imported this variety four times and have lost it each time until the last. I understand that it is of the same strain as Kashmir White, which you know is not vigorous, and so I do not recommend it.
