From AIS Bulletin #244 January 1982 Introducing CHOCOLATE SHAKE-TB, M. 91cm, Plic. 6-8A. $25.00. As the name indicates, a brown combination is involved. The full domed standards are highly ruffled and a blend of brown with a violet cast on a cream ground. The wide, semi-flaring falls are highly ruffled, too, having a brown fancy rim on a yellow band, set off by a white signal. Branching on this 36" plant is good, with 8 buds that develop into 5"x6" flowers. A clump is especially attractive. Gibson Iris Garden.
