Awaiting original catalog description
Hybridizer's Comment: Petal reverse shows with ruffles and it is plum brown. There is a white area across the falls just at the beards and a small yellow chevron that stands out below the beards. Beards are rich burnt orange. Very ruffled, full and wide. A most unique colour combination. Branching is a bit tight, but bud count is good and it is a good grower with a nice sweet perfume.
