Hybridizer's comment: One of the prettiest seedlings to have come from 'Decadence' so far. Standards are light honey butterscotch, ruffled and lightly laced. Falls are creamy butterscotch overlaid with light rose burgundy to around 1/2 way down fails shading to nothing at the bottom. There is a 3/16" edge of butterscotch, though it is blended in. Beards are tangerine with a slight burnished cast. Branching is 0K with some show stems. Fertile and a good parent. We love it!. Sister to 'Hint of Danger'.
