KEITH KEPPEL IRIS

COVERT CAPER (Keppel 2023) ML 35” Sdlg. 14-46D. (High Desert X ((Reckless Abandon x 07-176B, Hold the Line pollen parent) x Mixed Signals sib))

Plicata with warm white standards shading to palest blue. White-ground falls carry a 3/8” solid blackish purple edge with some fine speckling of elderberry on the inner edge. Spanish gold beards suggest something out of the ordinary is going on; look closely and you’ll see a 1/16” edge touched putty tan on the standards. But the truly covert action is in the half-hidden style arms, their crests carrying alternate striations of pinard yellow and violet.    $45.00
