Golden Dawn

Grand Monarque

Golden Rain

At last a yellow equivalent of Erlicheer, this is a rich yellow fully double flower, very impressive and wonderfully scented. 10 - 15 florets on a strong stem 12" tall, a very vigorous plant with good leaves, bulbs, and increase.

Flowers early here (in coastal central California), in the January - February period. Derived from French Sol, a variety related to Soleil d'Or, this needs a dry summer baking to flower best. A careful search among the numerous petaloids will reveal viable pollen of value to the hybridizer.
