From AIS Bulletin #225 Spring 1977 Introducing FLAMENCO (Keppel). Wild! Burnished gold standards; white to ivory falls with heavy 3/4" dark maroon plicata edging. Buds and branching galore. This one upstages Caramba! ((Henna Stitches x (Maricopa x Chinquapin)) x Montage) X Roundup). EC '76, HC '75 and '76. #71-12B. $25.00. Keith Keppel.
From Mid-America catalog 1981: FLAMENCO (Keppel 77). This one has all the flash and zest of the finest dancer of Spain. This variegata-plic with its cinnamon gold standards and ivory falls with solid band of maroon around them is stunning in the garden. On the show bench, its 3 branches (often with 3 open blooms) make a spectacular stalk. It has back up buds and superior growth. What more does an upcoming DYKES need?
