    RHS description at -
    'Fls 3 per stem, 75 mm wide; perianth and other petaloid segments in 2-3 whorls, broadly ovate, blunt, prominently mucronate, vivid yellow 9A, overlapping one-third to a half; the outer whorl spreading or a little inflexed, plane; the inner whorls more strongly inflexed, with margins incurved; corona segments about half the length of the petaloid segments, clustered at centre, yellow-orange (17B).'
    RHS has it listed in the standard range (over 12.8") but Brent and Becky's list it as more of a dwarf at 10 to 14". Brent is the hybridizer.
