A splendid acquisition and doubtless the finest Montbretia raised at this time. The flowers are a lovely Golden Orange. The buds are prettily tinged with Scarlet. The centre of the flower is very Pale Yellow. Shown by Mr. George Davison, Westwick Gardens, Norwich. RHS First Class Certificate, 1912. Award of Garden Merit, 2002. KAVB Award of Merit, 1913.
