Bred by Grant Mitsch in Oregon (1988). Unique coloration (blending of white over yellow). May be forced then transplanted into garden. Resembles a larger 'Chiloquin' with a slightly shorter corona.
Seed and pollen fertile; used as pollen parent once (Frost on Gold) by another Oregon breeder.(SJ Vinisky).
Said to resemble a larger 'Chiloquin' with a slightly shorter corona.
