Large flowers are a muted mauve with a slight orangy cast. The eye and edge are subdued violet and a pronounced orange center contrasts nicely with the violet eye before funneling into a small green throat, all of which evokes a sense of ominous weather approaching at sunset. The flowers face the viewer nicely on well branched scapes during a long bloom period. Fertile both ways.
(Rice, A + J ‘04) 30” scapes, 5.5” flowers, midlate season, semi-evergreen, tet.
