| From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing CARAMBA (Keppel) EM, 32". (Wild Ginger x Siva Siva) X (Gene Wild x Majorette) x Rococo) x Ballyhoo sib). The most striking "variegata-plicata" we have ever seen. Delightfully different! Clear bright yellow standards, lightly touching. Flared falls of white with butterscotch margin, almost completely sanded with a plicata wash of cyclamen purple to maroon to java brown speckles. Nicely ruffled, with three branches plus terminal, 8-10 buds. HC '73. HC '74 (18 votes). EC '74 (best seedling in Sacramento show). 61 votes for Favorite Guest Iris at Roanoke, making it the top nonintroduced iris on the list. Due to the large number of advance reservations, early ordering is recommended. (#68-27C). $25.00. Keith Keppel.
