From AIS Bulletin #173, April 1964. WHITE PRIDE (Dr. Branch '62) ML. 36". In our opinion one of the best white-whites, with white-tipped beard, that has been named to date. Highest quality in every respect, evenly spaced flowers on strong stalks; wide, ruffied, pure white petals, semi-flared, with show-bench branching. In voting for awards fifty judges agreed with this statement as it was seen blooming in the Denver Botanical Gardens at the 1963 AIS convention. Not too widely distributed; small stock. HM '63. $17.50. Robert Young.
From AIS Bulletin #170, July 1963. White Pride (Branch). A large white with lemon beard, ruffled and fluted; semiflaring. Slightly top-branched but a wonderful iris of good garden value.
