Hybridizer's Comment : A different colour combination that is difficult to describe in a few words. It is one of the first children from 'Adoree'. The standards are opalescent creamy-white with a faint 1/4" edge of pastel lemon with heavy midrib veining of lemon and olive reaching 2/3rds of the way up the standards. Falls are butterscotch, lighter in the centre and a deeper 1/4" edge of butterscotch and a golden area each side of the orange beards. Lovely formed blooms on show stems and should reward at that early show. Gives quite an array off seedling patterns including amoenas and different bicolours.
