Swept backed star shaped yellow petals w/ a strong orange red cup. Multiple award winner. Its short stature and very early blooming time are positive characteristics lending well to forcing over winter. May be translocated thereafter to garden where it should bloom in subsequent seasons. An ADS classic.
