Pale yellow flowers from orangey buds on dark purple red stems and calyces. Low growing compact plants for a lightly shaded border with good soil. Flowers spring into early summer. 30cm.
Another recent introduction with flowers that fade and change according to the light and their age making a good description difficult! Generally the dark reddish purple calyx reveals tangerine petals that fade to a pale creamy yellow by the time they fall.
Makes compact clumps that don't seem to increase quickly - selling faster than we can produce it so far anyway.
