From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: SWEET ALIBI (White 1935) E. M. 42 in. A beautifully finished self of rich warm creamy yellow. The flowers are large, smoothly rounded and Well poised on symmetrically branched stalks. The most perfect flower of its color, and a perfect color in iris. Its vigorous increase makes it very moderate in price for so new and fine a variety. H. M. 1936. $3.50.
