(TB) 'Mountain Sky'

1941, Milliken

'Mountain Sky' (Carl S. Milliken, R. 1939). TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-B1M. fragrant. Sdlg. 1594 X Sdlg. 1485. Milliken 1941. Honorable Mention 1941. Syn. Mountain Skies.

BLUE SPIRE, Milliken's new light iris which attracted so much attention a year ago, did not bloom, but MOUNTAIN SKIES, which Trekkers will remember among Mr. Milliken's seedlings as the very blue iris with flaring falls, made a fine showing. In color-tone it is comparable to SIERRA BLUE, but is much better for garden effect because of its freedom of bloom. [Lena M. Lothrop, “Poor Season in Southern California”, A.I.S. Bulletin 78 (Jul. 1940): 14.]
