Hybridizer notes: TET (Momentum x JT Davis), semi evergreen. 6 flower, 5-way branching. 30+ buds on a 28 scape.
This was a garden favorite this year. The flowers are intense gold with a heavy green overlay extending into the throat. The large ruffling on the petals can be up to an inch wide. An excellent parent for green edges.
Fertile both ways
