| From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1940: WOODBURY (Whiting 1910) M. L. 40 in. A large pure white of wide, flaring form, heavy substance and good height and branching. There are many good white irises but not so many that are hardy and free flowering in cold climates, so we feel that there is room for this one, which We introduce at a moderate price. It is tall and stately with wide branches to hold the large blooms in candelabra style. The substance is very heavy, the standards broad and well domed, the falls wide and flaring. Nine to eleven buds give a long blooming season. The plants are very large, increasing well and blooming freely. $10.00.
