SNOW FLURRY: (Clara Rees, R. 1939). This is the only reference to this iris in the AIS Check List. However, it is referenced several times with photos in the book, "The World Of Irises". Described as "EM, 48", Pure, frilled and ruffled icy white with a faint blue cast; orange blossom fragrance". Award of Merit 1941. I must reference the book, 'The World Of Irises', Copyright 1978, The American Iris Society: On page 62, the story is told (or so it goes) that Clara Rees had crossed 'Purissima' X 'Thais' resulting in TWO seeds. And one of them was bad. The resulting good seed was Snow Flurry. This is the maiden bloom (May 2006) for this cultivar in my garden. And, I must be honest, it took two full years to get around to it! No matter, it was worth the wait!
