A medium sized Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, branching habit; round stems, coloured green; spikes of flowers are open, yellow with pink spots, staminodes are medium size, edges irregular, style is yellow, petals yellow, fully self-cleaning; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white; tillering is average.
Featured in the 1908 outdoor trials at Wisley, England, EU. Examination of the RHS records will reveal the breeders of this pleasant cultivar, but our visits to the RHS Lindley Library are too infrequent for this one to climb to the top of our list that need research. One day we will reveal all!
