KEITH KEPPEL IRIS

SHIFTING GEARS (Keppel 2023) EM 36” Sdlg. 13-11A. (09-88F, Mystery Man sib, X (Red Skies x Gypsy Lord))

We’re used to variegatas, with yellow standards and reddish falls perhaps with a yellow border, but here we have a shift in the color application. Yes, the standards are yellow, clear and medium-dark with no other color. And yes, there is a citron yellow precise marginal band on the falls, clear or at times with grape striations. The rest of the fall is an extravaganza of colors — rosy brown hafts and striated overlay on pallid grape to white, the beards golden yellow. Flared and ruffled form, excellent stalks, branching and buds, plus vigorous growth.  $35.00
