From AIS Bulletin #216 January 1975 Introducing CO CO MOCHA. '75, M, 36". #55-9A. $25.00. Truly an unusual, rare brown color. An elusive hue that I've been seeking for years. Standards are a deep golden brown, almost solid in color and tightly held. Stylearm and crest are the same color. Semi-flaring falls are highly ruffled. Golden brown rim developing to dots of same color on a clean white ground. Deeper brown stripe runs from the rich golden brown beard to the brown rim. The name is well applied to its color. 3 branches plus terminal; 6 buds. Gibson's Iris Garden.
