Hybridizer's Comment : We dont have quite the words for this colour so have called it apricot-buff-coffee and there is a soft lavencier blue wash coming about 1/3 of the way down the falls. Beards are bright tangerine orange. It is completely ruffled with light lace particularly on the falls. Wide overlapping falls and stems beautifully branched with 3 flowers out at once. It has a musky perfume. Good parent for pastel tones. Gorgeous!
