| From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1955: RIO ARRIBA • (Stanley C. Clarke). M.·L. (Elsa Sass-type sdlg. x Tobacco Road) x (Gold Smoke.) Slightly darker in color than Char Maize, the falls do not flare quite as much and they carry a striking olive-brown beard. The 36-inch stalks are fairly well branched. It should be a wonderful parent for many colors and to use with somewhat related yellows, blends, tans and browns. $I5.00
