This is an interesting cross of the fabulous awarded ‘GeeBee’ combined with the albino Roberta.  I expect to see a range of colours from oranges through to deep pinks.  Full round shapes on arching stems.

E127 Sarc                   Elegance ‘Super’ x Sweetheart ‘Speckles’
Exact remake of the famous Kulnura Dragonfly.  Full-shaped, patterned flowers of the highest quality.  These are my favourite colour style.

E193 Sarc                   Kulnura Kaliedescope ‘BK’ x Amber ‘Gold’
Lovely peach yellow flowers from this cross.  There will also be a small percentage of pinks and possibly some reds, due to the nature of the Kaliedescope influence.

E126 Sarc                   Kulnura Kaliedescope ‘Yellow’ x Roberta ‘Good Yellow’
These will be some of the most gorgeous lemon yellows we have seen so far.  Expect very productive plants covered in spikes of albino yellow flowers.  100% yellows from this cross.
