From AIS Bulletin #213 April 1974 Introducing AUTUMN LEAVES (Keppel) M. 34". Vaudeville X Radiant Apogee. Begin by imagining the foliage of fall. Take a basic petal color of blended caramel and rose brown, wIth a flush of yellow at the base ofthe standards. To the falls add a washed overlay of reddish purple. Combine with burnished gold styles and orange-yellow beard. Put it together on heavIly ruffled petals with lightly swirled standards and slightly flared falls. Add a stalk with three branches plus terminal and about ten buds, and wrap it all up on a plant that grows and increases well. Fertile both ways. EC '72, HC '73. $25.00. Keith Keppel.
