From AIS Bulletin #229, Spring 1978 Introducing TAMPICO (Walt Luihn, 1978). #74-22. TB, 38", EM. ((Caliente x (Tompkins' 54-173 x Bang) x (Stop x Captain Gallant» X War Lord. In our quest for that elusive so-called "red", we, on occasion, bloom an iris which, although is not that desired "red" we hope to eventually get, is deserving of introduction in its own right. Such an iris is TAMPICO. To us, it is a "brown-red" self, although RHS lists its color as "oxblood red" (00823). As might be expected from its bloodlines, it is wide and flaring, of velvety texture, and is decorated with dark mustard beards. It has also inherited Caliente's great height and ramrod stem, and War Lord's width but not its lack of increase, and has four-way branching and good bud count. $25.00. Luihn's Iris Garden.
