Of startling color and color pattern, this is a smooth Arbutus pink, lustrously undertoned Watermelon Pink with huge, smooth thumbprints of rich Fiesta Orange on each side of the deep Arbutus pink beard. These prints merge with the rich pink of the flower about half way down the sides of the falls. Tall, beautifully branched stalks show the large ruffled flowers to advantage. 20.00.
