(Oriental Gold x Claire de Lune. Light yellow double hybrid. Ball form, one to three buds per stem. No pollen, does have seeds, no fragrance, no stamens. Average amount of bloom. First bloomed 1970. Height 28″. Very adequate stem strength to hold the flower. This plant does not show any evidence of the variety Claire de Lune. It appears quite similar to Oriental Gold above ground but the root system almost typical Lactiflora and unlike either of its parents. Earlier bloom than Oriental Gold. Light green foliage. Does not have yellow-green sprouts when emerging as does Oriental Gold. Seedling # 6502.
