Hybridizer's comment: A classic amoena with pure white standards, no other colour, and falls are violet to violet- black with a lighter area in the centre off the falls and then a small white starburst pattern spreading from around the vibrant tangerine red beards. Wide. flared and ruffled with some show stems once established. Great contrasting colour.
