Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said: ALPHA CENTAURI
92 M 32 D
These large flowers are a crisp, clean golden to lemon yellow with a small green heart, edged with “Brother Charles” gold bubbles and fringe. The form is wide and rounded with heavy substance and a corduroy texture. Scapes have excellent branching. Very fertile either way, producing extravagant edges.
