From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1932: THEME (Lothrop, 1932). Among dark blends there is no iris more beauitful and distinguished. The large flowers are carried on perfectly branched stems 46 inches tall. The substance is thick and firm. The ground color of the conic standards is bronze-gray with lavender reflections which grow deeper and more beautiful with age. In a newly-opened flower the undertone of the broad flaring falls is bronzed tan flushed and veined Petunia Violet which changes to a deep gray tinted and veined Old Lithro Purple. In its rare coloring it is unlike any other iris and in size, form, substance and branching could not be improved. Awarded Honorable Mention by the American Iris Society. $15.00
