A small Crozy Group cultivar; green foliage, oval shaped, spreading habit; round stems, coloured green; spikes of flowers are open, orange-yellow with a yellow margin, throat orange, staminodes are large, edges lightly frilled, fully self-cleaning, average bloomer; seed is sterile, pollen is fertile; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white and pink; tillering is average. Introduced by A. Crozy, Lyon, France in 1895.

Fades to a pink colour, luckily the fresh orange colour lasts for several days.
