Delicate Lace (Huben 03)

Delicate Lace (Huben 03) 18 E Re 4, Cream Self, Dor Dip Fra Ext
((Monica Marie * Stella De Oro) * Spring Frolic)

What an unusual form! Quite orchid-like: any narrower and it would be spatulate. The foliage is truly dwarf, with a flower large enough to surprise: it's almost a rock garden plant. Blooms start out cream, but rapidly fade in the sun to a highly diamond-dusted pearly polychrome. It usually blooms two sets of scapes for me, but more in other people's gardens. 8 buds. It throws excellent reblooming kids of all shapes and sizes, and carries melon.
