Hybridizer's Comment: It is so cute and so distinctive! It is uniformly liked by everyone who sees it. White standards have minimal violet plicata shadings and very prominent dark purple ribs. Delightfully showy styles are mid to dark metallic fuchsia. Little round button falls are white faintly washed and lined lilac with darker hafts. Small, rouged lilac spots surround non-intrusive white brushed tan beards.
