X Keppel seedling 02-169C: ('Hold My Hand'
). Tempo Two 2010/11.
| Hybridizer's Comment: A selection from many, many saved seedlings from the cross and so rewarding. Difficult to describe and the camera can't do it justice. Standards are lavender with 1/4" edge of beige lavender and the same beige lavender deepening at midribs. Falls are reddish violet with 1/4" lavender edge and a large electric violet blaze below the mustard yellow beards. Ruffled to lace with show stems and a nice sweet fragrance. A fine parent.
