| "Winter Carnival: the blooms on this fine white with yellow beard lasted when picked and used in a bouquet longer than any other variety in my planting. They were nice for four days and opened well in water." Mrs. Ed Conrad, (Idaho), “Observations of an Idaho Irisarian,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 116 (January 1950): 52.
| WINTER CARNIVAL (Schreiner, 1941). Each $1.00; 3 for $2.50. A fine hardy white, bred in Minnesota. Widely flaring falls, snowwhite in color, the throat heavily tinted gold. Branching is excellent and the stout stems hold the big blooms well aloft. This is surely one of our best whites. HM AIS, 1942. See page 26. Cooley's Iris catalog 1952, p. 44.
