Used extensively in breeding programs. Both seed and pollen fertile. Used 11 times each (pollen / seed parent).

An unusual color combination, the soft yellow petals with a halo at the base makes a glowing background for it's long, flaring salmon-pink trumpet; 16 to 20 inches, mid spring. Description complements of Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
