FERRIC (Milliken) For deep velvety richness in a glowing deep red iris, Ferric has no equal. And yet, in spite of the depth of color, this iris is a strong landscape variety. The large, handsome flowers with wide hanging falls and dome-shaped standards are carried on three-foot, well-branched stems and the plants are of unquestioned hardiness. An introduction of outstanding merit. For those who like a technical description we might add that the standards are light Aster-purple, flushed with brown and the falls deeper and redder than Bordeaux. The beard is orange-brown; the flower is slightly fragrant, and the blooming period is from midseason to late. $7.50. [Milliken Iris Gardens Catalog, Pasadena, California, 1940]
