From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1932: RED FLARE (Milliken, 1932). This variety, formerly carried under our garden No. 61, has attracted more visitors in our gardens than any other variety. Its blood red flowers with their brilliant golden beards carried lightly on three to four foot well-branched stems, attract one's attention from a distance, and a closer inspection increases ones admiration of it. Falls oxblood red, slightly deeper in the middle than at the edges, flaring; standards Indian red shading to lustrous antique brown near the haft. Excellent substance. Stalk 3 to 4 feet, well branched. Unquestionable hardiness. Honorable Mention American Iris Society. $15.00
