| From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: YARAI (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2011) 27" VE. Yarai is one of the first pseudatas to bloom. It is one of Mr. Shimizu’s medium height varieties blooming at only 27 inches but the stalks are well branched and carry lots of buds for a long bloom season. The flowers present an orange appearance from a distance but are actually a light yellow background which is lightly veined and speckled wine red. The prominent deep yellow signal adds pizzazz.The name means “Night Thunder”
