| Hybridizer's Comment : Dark amethyst standards gradually vein and shade to coffee tan on the outer portion. Strongly flared, ruffled amber yellow falls dip gracefully tord the end. Shoulders, lightly shaded apricot tan, and a small area of amber ivory accentuate the striking brownish rust beards. About seven moderately large exotic blooms per stem.
