From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1955: OLYMPUS SKIES (Mrs. Ralph Carlston). E.-M.(Snow Flurry x Aldura.) A very wide white plicata lightly marked with blue. The first direct seedling of Snow Flurry I have seen with a plicata pattern, and therefore feel it is destined to be a great breeder. Forty inches tall, it is a bit high branched, but the individual flowers are magnificent. $15.00
