| From AIS Bulletin #273 April 1989 Introducing CALICO CAT (Lankow) BB, 20", M-L. Sdlg. 7B45-3: 7579-2: (Andi x (6512: pink TB x Yellow Dresden)) X Miss Nellie. We have waited a long time for our second border bearded introduction, but we think Calico Cat is a good BB. The standards are soft light yellow. The semi-flaring falls are pale to light sea lavender violet with wine red splashed across the halts. All petals are lightly ruffled. Yellow beards. The stalk is slender, and the overall proportion is pleasing. Five and 6 buds. Light sweet scent. $20.00. Kirkland Iris Garden.
