A stunning OT hybrid by Judith Freeman of The Lily Garden. Flat, starburst-shaped flowers are down facing and look quite elegant in the garden. Color is an unusual bone white with touches of cream toward the center, all highlighted by incredible green nectaries. Fragrance is strong, sweet and slightly "soapy"; at certain times of day, it reminds me of the perfume of lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis). A vigorous grower with attractive dark green foliage.
