, 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.]
