Hybridizer's notes: Paper Lion takes its name from the appearance of being so delicate, not unlike a fine handmade paper, when in fact its lion's mane of a cascading-spatulate form withstands intense summer temps with great strength. A lime green throat reaches out, over the pale yellow self, along the mid-rib. Paper Lion has a subtle, yet strong garden presence, & blooms from the 1st week in July to the last week of August in my zone 5 garden. Like its full sibling, Mad Dogs And Englishmen, the parentage is Sdlg. RAV 016 (Brave World x Unk) X Heavenly Curls.
