Alpine Harmony

(Blyth 07 Aust) EM 36"

White standards with faint lemon at midribs. Falls are bright lemon yellow with a small lighter lemon area below the beards. Beards are orange over white. Huge ruffled blooms with plenty of buds and 5 flower placements. Big plants. An interesting pedigree making it a prospect for plicata breeding as well as amoenas and bicolours. It has proven to be a good parent.
