Unusual and easy to grow, always attracts attention and comment. With its numerous large, long, brightly coloured and slightly weird flowers, few walk past it without being enticed by its curious charm.

Tube: Claret rose with occasional yellow stripes and yellow waist, proportionately very long and slender.

Sepals: Claret rose with greenish yellow tips, held 1/4 up and reflexed at tips

Corolla: Light purple, unflared, petals curve in at edges.

Parentage: (F. magdalenae x (Forgotten Dreams x unknown)) x Whiteknights Pearl.
