Ploidy: Diploid
Bloom Size: 7.25 in.
Scape Height: 26.00 in.
In Stock: Yes
Basic Attributes:

large, reverse bitone, blooms early to mid-season, reblooms, 3-4 branches, 15-20 bloom count, pod fertile, pollen fertile, semi-evergreen.

The pod-parent is (All American Windmill X Bradley Bernard)
The pollen-parent is (Rosy Lights X Starlight Galaxy)


What clear and amazing complexity! This bitone (sepals lighter) "bouquet bloomer" has great veining... like deep red hairs running the full length of the petals, which are split by a white splash down each midrib. Light looping ruffles on both petals and sepals are SO elegant, and the large green (and fragrant) throat so perfectly symmetrical... one could argue for hours about just which trait is the most alluring! ;-)

Bloom scapes are really awesome, too! 4-way and a somewhat odd (or should I say... "slightly different"!) spread that's truly lateral, with each branch splitting in two.  On a diploid, this is simply FANTASTIC!

THANKS to Shirley Toney for getting such a pretty shot of this total hottie in her Indiana gardens! :-*
