Hybridizer's Comment: 'Be Brief'
Short, concise, to the point; in other words, to Be Brief. This garden pixie proves good things come in little packages. Butter standards are almost completely covered with wide charcoal purple plicata bands and dotting. Very round, precisely ruffled butter-yellow falls have narrow dark purple plicata bands becoming wider at hafts. Space between black lines over hafts is sanded and dotted plum. Brown beards are a nice complement.
