A distinct sport form Oakwood Goldcrest that was selected and secured by Bill Franklin. It has been shown and seen in the South when grown and shown by Bill and Dave Spencer. It is a pale yellow/cream version of the parent Oakwood and is a slight orange red flush on the blooms, particularly when protected. Grows to 1.2m. For the best blooms we would suggest not growing this more than 6 up.
