From AIS Bulletin #248 January 1983 Introducing CHICKASAW SUE-BB, M, 65 em, Plicata, #49-9B. $25.00. A crisp, clean, bright colored plicata. Fluted stands are an orange-red blend with a violet blush (31A). They are slightly open with strong midribs. The orange-red and brown speckled rims and hafts of the ruffled falls contrast beautifully with the clear white ground. Lovely and dainty blooms on excellently branched stalks with 6 to 8 blooms. Orange-red beards (31A) add to the sparkle. The 26" stalks and 4 x 4" blooms carry through the border motif. An attention getter. Gibson Iris Gardens.
