*RICHARD TAYLOR YATES -- [(Susan Pritchard Petit x Formal Appearance) x Nature’s Crown ] [(Unlock The Stars x Inner Space)] Sev. 6.5 - 7” fl. 28” sc. M 15 - 20 buds.  This has been one of my all time favorite doubles since its maiden bloom.  I have always loved the formal look of hose-in-hose doubles, and Richard Taylor Yates is probably my finest creation to date.  These flowers combine formal doubling with a heavy popcorn gold edge.  The flowers are a beautiful rose pink with a lighter pink watermark.  Very special indeed, and fertile both ways.
