From Keith Keppel Iris catalog, 1981: BROADWAY (Keppel '81) EM 34" (((((Irma Melrose x Tea Apron) x ((Full Circle x Rococo) x Tea Apron)) x April Melody) x Caramba) X Flamenco) By far, the most spectacular variegata-plicata we've yet seen. Dark, deep gold standards top ivory white falls that are broadly banded with red brown. Large flowers with average to good branching -- but always a show-stopper. We predict a long run for this production. #75-103D 25.00.
