I'm not sure I even like this one, but it might be a good
seed parent for further hybrids. It is tentatively named
'Drawn Butter' in reference to the creamy flowers that
show some yellow inside the florets, the buds a tawny
drawn butter color, eventually changing to a pink tinge
on the outside of the florets. The plant only grows about
3" (7.5 cm) tall, and is among the last of the "tauricums"
to flower.  The short bells and longer than average
stamens give a feathery appearance to the flowers.
Rather interesting I think.
