A very novel 'backwards' bicolor whose lighter color of deep golden yellow is carried on the inside of the petals with a darker bronzy orange-red backside. Usually, bicolors have the lighter color on the outside of the petal & a darker inside.
Plump pointed buds open to full old-fashioned blossoms. As the flowers mature, they blush & blend through a very pleasing array of colors all the way to the very finish.
This tall super-vigorous plant yields long stems lush with clean deep green leaves. Easy-to-grow & loaded with color.
