TIBURON (Gaulter '71 ) Each $25.00. From a long line of seedlings involving Arctic Flame we have this deep orchid with flaming red beard and fringed petal edges. All petals are fluted and waved, the blossoms of great size and are indeed remindful of giant orchids. Many blooms to the stem, at least three feet in height. No. 68-12. Shown on the cover. [Cooley's Iris, 1970]
