Oh I love this White!!!! It is highly iridescent (and that is something the pictures do not do a good job of picking up it seems). Then it has green veining against stark white sparkling with this iridescence. This is one of my favorites so far this bloom season. Planted Fall 2013 bloomed Spr 2014. 2015 update: This is now my favorite Iris. It seems to bloom about every month until mid fal and it does great in the heat!
