Awaiting original catalog description
Hybridizer's Comment: Bright and showy for sure. Standards are buff apricot with a slight violet flush at midrib. Falls are bright lilac with a well defined 3/8" edge of tan to tan violet. Beards are muted burnt tangerine. Ruffled and waved petals. Flower stems can have 3 out at once, but can be a bit close for a perfect show stem. Colour is what it has.
