Wedding Belle

EM 46" (Fogbound X Heaven)

Blushing bride with a flawless complexion. Rich apricot cream with slight peach toning at standard base, and just a tad rosier on the inner haft area of the falls. Pinkish coral orange beards add subtly tasteful interest. Rounded falls with pronounced gentle ruffling, well-spaced branches (up to three, and possibly a spur for good measure) plus terminal with up to eight buds.
Seedling #00-232A
