SOFT FOCUS, Late mid-season. (B. S. Duncan). Vernal Prince x Pure Joy [D 1580]. A lovely flower of distinct character which does not have the flat, sharp, precise image favoured by many exhibitors. However it has beautifully smooth and evenly contoured perianth segments which lend a special attraction and has been much admired. The shortish saucer cup is evenly lobed, opening GYY but maturing to a most attractive GWY, the yellow being of bright lemon. Different and beautiful in a class which badly needs new blood.
