(Kirchhoff) 30" EE Re Ex Dor 5 ½". The blooms of
this handsome beauty are an earthy color, marked with a yellow border
outlining half or more of the petals. The color is unique in hues of
rich brandy, date and chocolate -- dark and intense -- with a lighter
cloverleaf shaped watermark infused with yellow, above a flash of green
at the throat. The finish and substance are leathery and saturated with
a rare depth of color. An EMO, circular formed, with overlapped, slightly
recurved petals and sepals. Graced by a long season of bloom (even for
Florida), the strongly recurrent scapes are well branched and carry
ample bud count. Fertile, though moderately difficult pod set.
