From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1948: SHERWOOD FOREST (Milliken) In selecting this iris from among our many seedlings we had in mind particularly its use in flower arrangements, although it plays its part well in the garden. In color it is rich red-purple. The falls are narrow, long, and very velvety and against this background, for about two-thirds of the length of the fall, runs a full, rounded, bronze beard. 2-1/2 feet. $4.00.
