Awaiting original catalog description
There were four newcomers offered in 2009 which were in a class over all others and this is one of them. Flowers of it are brightest white with few navy spots near light yellow ridge of falls; but especial beauty to this charmer is added by large deep navy blue mid-zone on otherwise brightest white style branches. This one has normal standards that are topped off with a cusp. Very, very striking (parentage 91-FC-7 x 88-AX-3) Janis Ruksans' Bulb Nursery 2009.
