| From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: OKAGAMI (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2008) 34-36" M. This pseudata was awarded the best seedling in our beardless show in 2006. The color changes slightly as the flowers open giving a clump an interesting appearance. The standards are white but have a purple blush upon opening, style arms are creamy yellow with the ends brushed lavender and the falls have a very pointed bright wine colored eyelash. The name means “Big Mirror”.
