From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1952: VEILED IN MYSTERY (Milliken) A COLOR BREAK, the entire flower has the appearance of antique satin in an off-white with an ethereal dusting of the palest chartreuse. Both standards and falls are exquisitely fluted and ruffled. A full violet beard gives this flower a most unusual beauty-different from anything we have ever seen. Mysterious and very lovely. $25.00.
From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog 1956: VEILED IN MYSTERY (Milliken 1951) M. 36 in. (Unknown). A large, exquisitely ruffled flower of parchment white with a metallic like dusting of pale olive blue or chartreuse over both stands and falls and a striking beard of violet. Different and lovely. 5.00.
