| Hybridizer's Comment: Striking colour combination with the standards creamy white with a heavy blending of butter yellow at the midribs and a fine 1/8" filigree edging of butter yellow. Falls are a total contrast of rich red-burgundy to burgundy-black and with a heavy starburst outpouring of yellow around the beards and a chevron of bright gold about 1" long directly below beards. Beards are bright gold. Some show stems but mairily introduced for its stunning early garden colour and the fact that t is a super parent for soft pastels and even light blues. A very pleasing parent for early ones. Strong and reliable rebloomer for us.
