Comments Luminous, cupped buff flowers reminiscent of magnolia blossoms open throughout the season to reveal red-orange stamens. The off-white flowers are set off to perfection by dark, leaden green foliage. The blossoms emit a subtle spicy fragrance that dissipates quickly. ARS members rate it 8.3 which is pretty darn good. It might look interesting grown with its parent Fashion, whose coral flowers have a strong affinity to these.
