Yes, I just looked it up on the Historic site, so either I got off w my camera or it was mislabeled.
I haven't gone thorough all my photos, so maybe it will show up somewhere else, or someone has the proper photo.
Jan, did you get a photo of this iris by chance?
K. Dykes, 1931
TB 32" EM WW, From Schreiners Iris catalog for 1946: "One of the finest whites for foreground planting. A very large variety with shapely blooms of splendid texture. A warm white despite its snowy coloring due in part to the warm golden beard and haft marking, and in part to gold dust sprinklings throughout the flower. Price .35"
From the Robert Wayman catalog for 1940: "A top notch white Iris among so many fine new white ones and by many judges considered the finest iris of all. It is a massive flower of purest snow white, undoubtedly the largest and most massive. .35"

Yes, GUDRUN is white. I wouldn't hazard a guess as to what the imposter really is.

Thanks, there were some mislabeled. One reason I'm posting these. I know Celeste in one garden was wrong, then at another garden I think it was correct because it match the one I have in my garden. This is why we have this site to double check things. Thanks for your info.
In fact, many labels as the experts saw them, pulled the label so we wouldn't get confused.
The Kansas State site ask us to review and pull ones we didn't think were correct. I don't know enough to feel I could say anything without research, except I was pretty sure about the one Celeste I saw.
