| From AIS Bulletin #216 January 1975 Introducing SUN SNAP. '75 M & Rebloom, 38". #6-0E. $25.00. This exotic beauty is a sibling of AUTUMN ECHO, but of a much different pattern. Branching is three plus with 8 buds. Reblooms as reliably as AUTUMN ECHO. Standards are serrated and ruffled, having a wide garnet rim of specks and lines (more intense at the edge) over a cobalt yellow ground. Inside the standard is a deep yellow. Falls are really outstanding, having a most intense, smooth cobalt yellow ground that really demands attention. Around the edge is a 1-inch band of garnet brown specks and lines. At the tip of the orange-yellow beard is a small white signal patch. Gibson's Iris Garden.
