From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1940: In recent years there have been a number of excellent yellow irises introduced to commerce, but the creams seem to have been neglected. It is a pleasure, therefore, to introduce Ivory Oueen. The Flowers are exceptionally large and are a uniform soft cream, with a bright orange beard , giving a pleasing accent to the center of the flower. The falls are wide and Flaring and the substance and texture of the Flower leave nothing to be desired. Ivory Oueen is a vigorous iris with fine foliage and is an early to midseason bloomer. The stems are well branched and grow to a height of from 372 to 4 feet. It has not yet been tested in the colder climates for hardiness. $10.00.
