From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1963: VESTAL ROBE 59-1 (Wheeler 1963) M.L. Symmetry of form and great purity of color are characteristics of this imposing white iris. The broad standards are arched and firmly domed. The wide flaring falls are neatly ruffled and the white color is uniform except for the full light yellow beard. Judges and garden visitors have praised this tall stately white that has exceptionally fine branching, often with three well spaced blooms open at once on each flowering stalk. The strong sturdy flowers have such firm substance that they remain in perfect condition in all kinds of weather. Lady Ilse x Chinese White. 38 in. $20.00
