Hybridizer's comment: Cheerful variation on the yellow amoena theme. White standards, ruffled and upright to touching, are yellow at the base. Falls, flared and waveruffled, are basically yellow, with a fine lighter (or even white) edge and carry a white center blaze texture-veined and partially washed yellow. Orange yellow beards lighten to cream at end. Good branching, seven (up to ninel) buds.
