From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: WHIR OF LACE (Schreiner '58) M-35". Whitest of all lacy lovelies, with perfection of beauty, crystalline purity & exquisite charm. It is as ethereal as gossamer; as lacy as a bridal veil, & as snowy as an angel's wing. Indeed, we have here a gem for the ultra connoisseur. HM '61, JC '61 ((Sdlg. x New Snow) X D. Hall Sdlg.). Regularly $6.00; on $10 order $5.40; on $25 order $5.10.
