Standards have pure white ground color while falls ground is chalky, palest buff. Plicata banding around the falls is a unique bubblegum grape color that is emerging. Growth is vigorous and disease resistant as one would expect from its parent Ink Patterns. Show stalks are the norm. It is one of the last to bloom. Sdlg.
