From Bay View Gardens catalog,1991: CARACAS, 38 inches, early to late season. $35.00. This pure, deep, pulsating orange incorporates all the sterling qualities a superior iris must have: balanced full form, undulating ruffling, multi-branching and bud count, rapid increase and all this on a tall, well branched stem. While our orange line has made quantum advances, we feel it will be awhile before Caracas will be superseded. Destined for glory from its maiden bloom. No. 85-27M: (83-82M: (((Creme de Creme x Financier) x (Ballet in Orange x Coffee House)) x Cinnamon sib) x Cafe Society) X Guadalajara.
