Comments: Some may describe this as more of a yellow primary color, but I'll concentrate on the edging. Either way it is a stunning combination with frilly pink edging giving way to a yellow dominated throat and highlighted with prominent dark red spotting on the upper lobes. All forming a nice ball-shaped truss atop a bed of dark green leaves. Another winner from Jim Barlup. Until I can get a picture in the spring there is a nice photo on the hirsutum site.
