From Adamgrove catalog, 1997: OMAR'S GOLD (Boswell, 96) OGB-intermediate. Lavender orchid standards, gently darkened at their bases, float atop golden falls. A soft dark maroon signal gradually spreads over the gold to become nothing more than a hint of auburn before it reaches the edges. The sturdy blossoms, quite resilient even to heavy rains, are borne on stalks 18 high. (Puppet Baby x Moon Spot)XOnlooker. $15.00
