From AIS Bulletin #171 October 1963. Introducing ORANGE CHARIOT-Smooth, orange self with deeper orange beard. H.C.'62. $25.00. Moldovan's Gardens.
ORANGE CHARIOT (Fay '64) had three stalks finished, one with a single flower in bloom, and four with two blooms open. The color appears to be a light orange but is actually spectrum orange on the chart, midway between yellow and red. Again that bright coral beard and the usual healthy blue-green foliage. [Roberts, Earl (1964). Taped Commentary on Fay Garden, American Iris Society Bulletin 174(July 1964), 49.]
