This lovely true dwarf cultivar has a sturdy habit and green foliage. The flowers are in nicely rounded heads. Each individual flower is like a flattened trumpet with petals that do not quite overlap. The basic colour is clear buttercup-yellow with dainty red spotting. One of the creations of Ernest Turc.
