Thanks, Randy, for the rotated picture.  Janet, this one reminds me 
of Lady Boscawen.  The only way to know for sure, as has often 
pointed out, is to acquire the possible match, grow them side by side 
and compare.  Judging from the form and character in the photo, it 
looks like a Purissima offspring for sure, but weren't nearly all 

It is helpful to look at the patterning of the haft veins--often a 
variety match can be helped along by close inspection of those 
markings, as unique in Iris as fingerprints are in a human.  Trouble 
is, there were umpteen thousand whites of this vintage one could use 
for comparison.  Since relatively few of them were as clean as this 
one appears to be and had general distribution, this might be one of 
the better known ones.
