This classic cultivar from the Netherlands is seed and pollen fertile; utilized as a seed parent 8 times and as a pollen parent twice.
Rated Highly Commended by the RHS (1985).

Cassata - (11a W-W) the yellow cup which matures to almost pure white, folds back against the pristine white petals, almost completely covering them; a large flower that makes a wonderful mass of color; good perennializer, too; 16"-18"; early-mid spring.
Compliments of Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
