·         Beautiful snow white, with absolutely gorgeous navy markings. Its yellow ridge spills onto the fall giving the surrounding surface a creamy glow. Scattered about are few large navy blotches. Smaller ones can occasionally be found even right to the fall's edge. Unlike many I. danfordiae hybrids, this one has normal standards that are topped off with a cusp. The style ribs have wide navy markings. Very, very striking!

·         Won 'Primeur Lentetuin 2012' (Spring Garden flower show in Breezand, The Netherlands)

·         It is now officially registered as Eye Catcher. Long story short, in 2009 it was introduced as Avalanche by Janis Ruksans because the Dutch bulb grower who had been testing it said he didn't want to go through with it... Truth is, the bulb grower clearly wasn't doing a good job of testing my hybrids - he did in actual fact want to introduce it.
