An oldie but goody. Beautiful splash petals on a soft pink bloom. Lower lip margins and petal tips are splashed in dark cherry red. The cream color offsets the color compbination of pink and cherry red perfectly. These bloom size plants are currently being grown in semi-hydroponic culture. Clear plastic pots with aliflor. Can be shipped bare root at customer request. (Lc. Irene Finney x C. Cherry Chip) A strong breeder for splash petal influence progeny. Lovely fragrance! Limited
