When one’s pelt is brown, a yellow frock is just the thing to set it off. Gwendolyn Vole takes her dress out of the press and runs a careful claw over the stiff layers of chiffon. “Like being dressed in sunshine,” she squeaks!
The flower is a bright sunny yellow with rounded petals which gently roll back. Double and semi-double flowers have a cluster of petaloids at the center.
The rounded petals have a creped texture, with tiny pleats at the petal edges. Orange anthers add a pleasing touch of contrast. Early bloomer, starting last week of June here. Very hardy. Two- to three-way branching, 12-16 buds per scape. Many scapes and flowers.
