From Keith Keppel Iris catalog, 2017: VISTA POINT ML 39” (Sorbonne X (Class Ring x High Octane)) #08-24A. Port wine standards with very faint lemon basal peppering. Port wine hafts, edge, and faint mid-line on a white ground that carries a lemon yellow patch below the layered rust, purple, and white beard. Think: desert red sandstone cliffs, looking through a natural arch onto white sand, with golden sunbeams coming down. Whoever said it was only the plicata markings that can vary? So can the pattern of the ground color! About 7-9 buds. $50.00.
