Colleen,  Iris City Gardens carry both *albicans* and *florentina.*  Neither look like what I grew in Idaho as albicans.
The Iris City Gardens photos show albicans a quite a clean white.  Their written description mentions a yellowish influence in the hafts.  The florentina is described as white with a bluish influence.  The photo on their website shows a slight bicolor with some yellow in the hafts.
What I grew was a slightly greyed-white intermediate, completely sterile as far as I could tell and did not have the crisp look Iris City's photo suggests.
The folks at Iris City are pretty careful about identities.  Their *Iris germanica* photo is the first I've seen that really matches the description.  It is a bitone blue-violet in their photo.
