The fluted flaring falls have a base color of Yellow Ochre flushed at the center with Spanish Orange (010/2) around the rich orange beard.The colors are so intermingled that it is difficult to describe, but it is a rich colorful blend that flowers with great freedom on tall well branched stalks. 39 in. $15.00
