Hybridizer's Comment: a delicious confection with pastel pink standards infused cream. Falls are soft pastel lilac over creamy white. The falls are edged with an 1/8" of soft lavender pink. Beards are white tipped pink in the throat. Form is wide and ruffled to lace. Branching is good and it sometimes reblooms in Autumn. Very fertile. Sister to 'Amorous Heart'.
