Offered by Paul Christian Rare Plants with the following description--"A superbly coloured clone, perhaps the best, with well coloured primrose yellow flowers, in which the down-turned haft is deep golden yellow, flecked here and there with burnished gold shade. The floral parts are wider and more substantial than other clones, so that the flower appears to have more substance. There are usually 3 or more flowers open at a time on each stem. As it fades it is replaced by another from lower down the stem".
