Descriptions:
This is the streaked form of the old favorite 'Summer Music', and it's a pretty cool plant by itself. If you are a hybridizer this plant offers some fairly unusual genes for you to work with. Seed set is very good on this plant, and germination is too. The seedlings are vigorous and sturdy, and offer a look much different from the normal run of streaked plants based on the old Kevin Vaughn crosses or the substance-free sieboldii plants. Seedlings strongly favor smooth rounded leaves, which is fairly unusual in itself, even less common in a streaked gold. This is a great plant to work with.
Progeny:
'Rock Concert' = PP x 'Beer Belly Blues'
