From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: CHINA BOY (Milliken) Those who see this magnificent iris with its huge flowers of rich red bronze, toned with shades of brown and carried on tall stately stems, immediately determine to have it in their own garden. China Boy is one of those rare flowers that has a universal appeal. A clump of it growing in your garden will provide that deep bronze color note so necessary as an accent to the yellows, whites, light blues and pinks. It is stunning growing near a deep blue-purple such as Royal Salute. 7.5O.
