From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1948: TOURNAMENT QUEEN (Milliken) A bright fuchsia-toned flower, firmly built and flaring, which spreads seven inches or more. The texture and lustre is like that of closely woven fine-thread nylon. The petals are serrated and are flexed enough so that portions of them are always high-lighted. The flexing in the standards makes it possible to look into the flower at the beautiful broad styles. These are chartreuse with a fuchsia ridge down the middle. Very fragrant. Early. The plants are vigorous. 3 feet. $5.00.
