From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1945: FORT KNOX (Milliken) Much of the world's supply of gold is buried at Fort Knox, Kentucky. As for the rest, a portion must surely be stored in the depths of this glorious yellow iris. Both standards and falls are a uniform rich golden yellow with a smooth, even finish and a quality which surpasses anything we have ever seen before in a yellow iris. The flowers are unusually large with handsome broad falls that flare out at a most graceful angle. A hardy vigorous grower with fine foliage, a free bloomer, perfectly branched stems, and altogether the finest medium yellow iris we have ever seen. 3-1/2 feet. $5.OO. 3 for $12.
