Seedling number 6-25-2-201-9. Parentage not given. First bloomed 2011, first propagated 2014. Early blooming SINGLE flowers are yellow with outer shades of pink contributing to an overall effect of apricot coloration. Flowers are 17cm (6.7”) in diameter, upward facing, and average one per stem. Petals are arranged in four layers, with frilled and ruffled guard petals that contribute to a full appearance. Flowers possess on average three very hairy, green carpels with pink stigmas of normal anatomy. Stamens are more than 2cm (0.75”) in length. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 71cm (28”) at maturity, and carry broadly pointed, green foliage with undertones of purple. Growth habit is upright; mechanical support is unnecessary. Good potential for cut-flower production and a beautiful garden subject. Named for a Roman gold coin.
