The ground color is deep butter yellow and there is a slight all around feather edging of rich red brown that deepens and becomes so solid and distinct over the shoulders and haft that it gives a vivid epaulet effect. A lighter area in the center of the falls and a rich gold beard add further brilliance to the whole flower. The form is good with broad, heavily substanced and sleekly finished petals. 3.00
