Hybridizer's Comment: Soft creamy peach-apricot standards. Stylearms are slightly darker giving it an inner glow. Falls are similar with a soft overlay of gentle pastel lavender. Beards are soft tangerine on white. Very ruffled and flared with show branching. This is gorgeous and we have used it a lot in hybridizing. Not easy to pod but will set.
