Hybridizer notes:
WILD AND WONDERFUL (Stamile,P.) TET [Waiting In The Wings X (Lavender Arrowhead x Jabberwocky)] 36 ERe. emo. Evr. 8 bloom, 10 wingspan. 2.8:1 spider ratio. Unusual form. Twisted crispate. 8-way branching. 53 buds.
It is both wild and wonderful: wild with its twisting and curling of the petals and helixing of the sepals, wonderful with great presence, fabulous scapes and branching. The beige pink petals and large fern green throat and huge red chevron eye really sets WILD AND WONDERFUL apart from other spider types. Pod fertile only.
