The blossoms on this giant are absolutely exquisite. Fresh, clean, pure, yet colorfully striking, this is an overall snow white with perwinkle blue to edges that nicely fades to white on the top half of the falls. Add in the fluffy orange beards, and you've got the very lovely Rebecca Perret. Easily my favorite tall bearded to date. Good stubstance. Waist high stalks are strong and sturdy. Does not proliferate quite as vigorously as many others.
