Hybridizer's comment: All that's missing is the smell of brimstone ! Smoky, smouldering hot luminata, with aureolin yellow standards flushed brownish red in the central portion. Zanzibar red falls, with a velvety wash overall, carry a narrow aureolin edge, while the white hot heart is edged bright golden lemon. Beards are also golden lemon. Ruffled, with terminal and three branches, up to eight buds.
