From Milliken catalog, 1945: MOTHER'S DAY (Milliken). These flowers have a refinement and subtle charm which make them particularly appropriate for Mother's Day. Their color is soft grey which is enriched and given life by tints of lavender. Their beauty is out of the ordinary. But their heritage is also out of the ordinary, for one of the parents of Mother's Day is Top Hilly. Top Hilly has in it elements imported from Iran (oncocyclus elements to those who are technically minded) which are rare in our garden iris. The plant itself is very vigorous and free flowering. 36 inches. $5.00: 3 for $12.50
