  • Posted by Joy (Kalama, Wa. - Zone 8b) on Dec 3, 2011 6:20 AM concerning plant:
    An eyed bicolour classic spider with perfectly branched scapes and presentation of the large, somewhat curly flowers. From (Rainbow Spangles X Lois Burns) Mt. Top Experience took its curliness from Lois Burns and its colour palate from Rainbow Spangles: Petals maroon-ish violet dusted over yellow-chartreuse with a darker chevron-shaped eye and yellow-green sepals. Recipient of the Harris Olson Award in 1993 for spiders and an HM in 92, this spider is worthy if the fame it has won. Slow to increase in some gardens.
