(BB) 'Muted Blue'

1949, Milliken

'Muted Blue' ( Carl Milliken, R. 1949). MMB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-B1L. Parentage unknown.

From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1949: This particular iris is a charmer. A demure flower of soft gray-blue-the falls are a pale campanula blue with edges a shade lighter; the standards are this lighter blue. The beard is golden and flanking it are pale chartreuse reticulations. The flowers are not large, 6 inches, and their main charm is in the rather prim, starched appearance of the flowers, which are gracefully placed on low, well branched stalks. $5.00.

Note: Also listed in TB web: 'Muted Blue'.
