See below:



From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1955: QUEEN'S LACE (Muhlestein). M.-L. (Clara B) x (Gold Ruffles x Chantilly.) Creamy-white done up with the heaviest laced edge--so heavy in fact that it is often difficult for the standards and falls to let go of each other so the flower may open. The edges of the petals, the hafts, and the beard are light yellow, and the unopened buds are also creamy-yellow. A very novel personality. H.C. '54. No. 52-28. $25.00
From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: QUEEN'S LACE (Muhlestein '55) M-L-34". See my color photo. A personal favorite of mine; one that approaches the ultimate in floral beauty. Cream standards with snow-white falls, edged in heavy cream lace. The lacing is so heavy it is probably not surpassed by any other Iris to date. You can't go wrong on this! Pollen plentiful. Pollen parent of Lace Flounces. JC '56; AM' 57. Clara B X (Gold Ruffles x Chantilly). Regularly $3.00; on $10 order $2.25; on $25 order $1.95; 3 for $5.55.
