    The hydbridizer's description, from her 1939 catalog is as follows: "a full ruffled flower with deep yellow background, flecked and powdered with warm golden sepia. The darker sepals of burnt orange are most unusual. The whole flower has an almost embossed appearance that is very distinctive." The color classification code in the AHS sources is erroneous and should have been OYM2-P rev, if that matters. It is a reverse bitone involving sepia speckling on a deep yellow base, with sepal color so deep as to appear burnt orange.
