From AIS Bulletin #225 Spring 1977 Introducing TENNESSEE FROST (James McWhirter, 1977). TB, E, 38". Named for my home state, where I first grew iris. A variety to usher in your tall bearded season. A sparkling, clean white, with self beards, with only a hush of yellow toward the throats. Wide petaled, with domed standards, and ruffles! Good branching, 8 buds, adequate for both the garden & show bench. (First Snow X Sapphire Hills). HC'76. $25.00. Cottage Gardens.
