From Glen Road Iris Gardens catalog, 1926: SNOW WHITE (Sturt. 1926) As pure a white as White Knight, even the markings are a pale green which gives it a delightfully fragile appearance. Good form, size, and substance; over 3 ft. 15.00.
From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: SNOW WHITE (Sturt. 1929) E. 39". A pure white of good size and splendid form. Pale green markings give it a fragile effect, but it has substance and stands wind, rain and sun, as well as any we know. White Knight has always been a lovely and desirable iris, and the fact that Snow White has the same lovely coloring, but is taller and larger, bids fair to make it one of the most sought after white iris of the future. It should be in every garden. $2.00.
