Hybridizer's Comment: Deliciously rich neglecta that has a mysteriousness about it. Standards are light lavender blue, ruffled and closed. Falls are rich violet to violet black with a small lighter zone around the beards and a smaller defined white spray pattern around the vivid tangerine beards. Wide overlapping falls and lots of substance. Branching is very good with up to 10 or 11 buds. Very deep green foliage with purple base. Proving to be a good parent.
