Hybridizer's comment: A luminata chosen for its easy growth and extravagance of bloom. Soft buff salmon standards flushed pastel violet, falls with deeper rosy violet allover brushing deepest in the center, lighter by the warm buff edge. Apricot and vory hearts are accented with harmonious orange beards. Ruffled, some-what globular form. Well branched, with eight (to ten) buds.
