Hybridizer's Comment: Standards are pure white. Falls are white with a soft creamy edge and an infused central area of texture veining and blending of soft violet coming down to within 1/4" of the bottom of the fall. Hafts are orange and beards are lightly burnt tangerine. Lots of colours. Great show branching, fertile and a good parent, giving different patterns.
