Golden yellow flowers tinted with light bronze. The well formed blooms have true decorative formation and the variety is still capable of producing quality blooms for the show bench. For the best size flowers remove the growing point when 4-5 pairs of leaves have developed and thin resulting side shoots down to allow only 3-4 shoots to develop (2 if for exhibition). Once the terminal bud has developed and is about the size of a 10p piece 3 pairs of the side buds can be removed to further maximise flower size. If you are growing solely for garden display then all flowers can be allowed to develop but resulting flowers will be smaller. Dead head regularly.
