Hybridizer's comment: Bright golden yellow with a striking 3/8" light brown band around the falls. This is known as the "Emma Cook" pattern so it is not a plicata. Full, wide and flaring blooms on show stems and a good grower and increaser. A delightful sweet perfume is also present. Fertility untried but a promising pedigree.
