| From AIS Bulletin #200 January 1971 Introducing SUMMER SET. Arilbred. 18". EM. Seedling 66-5. Large, very round flower on strong stem. Well grown this looks like an oncocyclus having very full, round standards with strong curved ribs that meet at the top and very wide, completely recurved falls. The basic color is bronze but the standards are completely suffused with pink which gives a light apricot color. The falls have more orange-pink infusion making them a deep, rich apricot. Signal area is very deep red, and the brown beard is quite short. Large styles are the same color as the falls, prominent, but not protruding. Two buds in the terminal. Flowers long lasting. Strong growing plant. It gives a few seeds per flower by halfbreds and is easier to get pods on than most 3/4's of this type. (Imam Salah x Imaret) X Persian Brass $25.00. Mount Clare Iris Gardens.
