Hybridizer notes:

(Wild and Wonderful X Wild and Free) 42 EERe. emo. no fr. Ev. 12 x 1.375 x 1.125. 16 wingspan. 5-way branching (3 laterals plus terminal y). 35 buds. Classic spider. Spider ratio 6.1:1.

This is one of our earliest flowers to bloom. When CHERRY SWIZZLER begins blooming there is literally a sea of green as a backdrop. Along with NARROW PATH you could not ask for a better beginning bloom.

Blooms are outfacing on tall well branched scapes. Both petals and sepals twist and curl as they cascade down.
A lovely addition to the EE class. Fertile both ways but a difficult pod parent.
