See below:


From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1940: MOUNT CLOUD (Milliken) There is something about this iris that makes it stand out as different and superior to most white irises. It is particularly clear and clean in its whiteness; the surface of the large petalsis smooth and polished. The veins in the haft accent the unusual purity of this superb iris. It blooms on stems more than fifty inches tall and the Rowers are five inches tall by five inches wide. See page 12. "I could not find a single fault in this iris. A cool blue-white, free blooming and splendid iris," says an Illinois customer. From Massachusetts comes this word of praise: "In my opinion, Mount Cloud comes as near to being perfect as you can get in any iris." $1.00; 3 for $2.50.
From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1938: MT CLOUD (Milliken 1936) A stately blue-white iris of satiny sheen. The large standards are closely held together, the broad falls are flaring and well shaped. The flowers are nicely placed on well branched stalks. H. M., A. I. S. 1936. 40 ft. $5.00.
