Awaiting original catalog description.
Rockytop Gardens 2018 website offers the following description; "CITRUS SQUEEZE (Steve Kelly 2016) New Mexico. TB, M, 36”. Named as such because there are varying shades of yellows and oranges reminding one of a luscious blend of citrus juices. The standards are a bright yellowish-orange with heavy mango-colored veining . The falls are a lighter yellow with white radiating from underneath the bright yellow-orange beards to about midway down the falls. Very wide petals with smooth texture and excellent substance can take the New Mexico sun! Strong stalks with 6-7 buds. Nice!
Seedling # HAD 09-2: (House Afire x Decadence)"
