Beautiful even variegation on a symmetrically growing plant. One of my favorite 'Buckeye's'. Highly recommend.

From Pat Hancock's catalog:
(8745) Hard to describe. Bright pink semidouble pansies very ruffled with raspberry glitter fantasy resembling the markings on an orchid. Ruffled raspberry glitter edge on shiny medium green, cream and some pink variegated foliage. Very beautiful. Unusual blossoms. Best in Show winner. Large.
