From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1940: DAY'S FAREWELL (Milliken) A seedling of the beautiful China Maid, this iris carries the fine qualities of its illustrious parent into a distinctly different color range. The standards are very large and tall and are a uniform rose-lavender. The long, hanging falls are a deeper rose-lavender than the standards and are overlaid at the center with brown, with a distinct pale margin at the edge. Because of the unusually large size of the Flowers and the vigorous growth of the plants, Day's Farewell soon produces a mass of beautiful bloom, making it an excellent landscape iris. A midseason bloomer. Height 3-1/2 to 4 feet. $10.00.,
