(Rich 2020) Sculpted cristate, Tet, Dor, Late, 5 3/4" bloom, 29" tall, 3 way branching, 15 - 18 buds
These 5 3/4" blooms are a pale yellow cream to cream with a blue violet eye and edge. In shade the eye appears as a pure true blue on a pale cream base. Sunlight adds a touch of red to the blue making the color lean toward blue violet and the base a pale yellow. Almost always cristate, the individual blooms have ruffled cristation on the midrib or feathered cristation on the surface of the petals. On a clump it's not unusual to see several midrib cristate blooms and several blooms with cristation on the surface open on the same day. On the rare occasion there is no cristation the blue eye becomes the focal point and is stunning! Fertile both ways, an excellent parent for both cristation and blue eyes.
