Iris sanguinea is a perennial herb of Iris (Zhao, 1985). It has high ornamental value with beautiful, brightly colored flowers (Shang and Wang, 2014). It is easy to manage and resistant to adverse conditions (Huang et al., 2003). I. sanguinea f. albiflora is a variant of I. sanguinea, which grows in wetlands, wet meadows, or rivers in the Sanjiang wetland in the northeastern part of Heilongjiang (Zhao et al., 2000). We released a new I. sanguinea f. albiflora cultivar named White Skirt in 2017. ‘White Skirt’ was selected from an open-pollinated progeny population of I. sanguinea f. albiflora. Its white outer and inner perianths (RHS 155A) have wavy and serrated margins.
