Full bodied blooms that are a lovely blend of orange and bronze. The blooms are held on sturdy stems on compact plants. 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 4-5 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. Raised by Ian Hill this variety was winner of the NDS Exhibition Trials at Golden Acre Park and the Harry Howarth Memorial Trophy in 2011.
