KEITH KEPPEL IRIS

STORMSCAPE (Keppel 2022) M 36” (Catch the Fever X (Nouveau Riche x (Mysterious Ways sib x Safari Sunset))) #13-69A

Storm chasers be on alert! The dusty apricot-tan flowers carry a foreboding cloud of dark amethyst violet at the center and base of the standards. Below, the flash of nasturtium orange-red beards accentuate the approaching storm. Stalks with three or four branches, up to eleven buds, mean the storm isn’t going to blow over anytime soon. All this is happening over strongly purple-based foliage. $
