Hybridizer's Comment: This has been liked a lot since its maiden bloom. Standards are light honey butterscotch with a pinkish blush at the midrib. Falls are blended pink-rose shading to soft lavender in the centre and a fine wire edge of gilt around falls. Beards are tangerine orange. Loads of ruffle and light lace on wide flowers. Good branching with show stems. Fertile.
