Amigo’s Guitar

Plough, R. 1963 / I. 1964

TB 36″ EM

From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1966: “(sib to Kachina Doll X Melodrama). Sib to Bon Vivant and Wild Plum and entirely different from either. The standards are buff with violet infusion on midribs. The falls are violet, and are ruffled and fluted. Beard is yellow. Fertile pod parent.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1976: “Standards are dark Butterscotch with a violet midrib, the wide falls blue-violet, lightly tinted rose, ruffled and fluted. This is similar in pattern to Gypsy Lullaby – but the colors are more subdued.”

(Pansy Face: sib to Kachina Doll X Melodrama), HM 1965, JC 1966, AM 1967.
