Nouveau Riche

VE-E 40" (Mysterious Ways sib x Ghio 95-30-02: ((Rogue x Quito) x (Island Dancer))

Can hardly wait until TB season to flaunt it. Rich brassy yellow standards have a rosy mauve central area. Dandelion gold falls carry a small cream glint near the yellow ochre beard. Tightly constructed flowers deeply ruffled on the shoulders, falls lightly flared. Tall, sturdy stalks with up to eight or nine buds. One of the brightest of the 'golden tops'.
Seedling #99-93A
