Hybridizer's Comment: Lots of colours in this one with standards of soft lavender with an olive flush coming up through the midribs; falls are purple with a brown area each side of the beards and some brown veining coming all the way down the falls. This is set of with 1/4" lilac edge and gold over light brown beards. Enormous blooms on good stems. A light sweet perfume is noticeable and it is a fine parent.
