Deze bijzonder mooie cultivar maakt een gezonde indruk en heeft korte, stevige stengels. Tijdens de keuringsperiode is geen enkele keer Botrytis waargenomen.

Blooming Period: Week 5

Fragrance: Faint

Side Buds: 1 or 2 per stem

Comments: The guard petals are magenta rose in colour while the centre is an interesting frilly yellow. The foliage is light green and leaf margins are crimped adding an interesting texture to the plant. Flowers a day or two after 'Westerner' with flowers of the same form and size, only a few shades darker. They look great planted together!
