    If you either grow this hybrid, or know of someone who grows it, then take the time to inspect the golden rim of the standards close up. What's fascinating is how this region is actually comprised of small specks of both yellow and purple pigmentation, which when seen from a distance gives the remarkable illusion of a solid golden edge. Isn't Mother Nature wonderfully, amazingly clever?
