(Valente-Kroemer-Wuersch, 2008, 38", 5.5", M SEV Tet, 5-way branching, 33 buds)  Their description includes:  Soft peach with strong pink red eye and slight red gold wire ruffled edge above lime green throat.  On closer examination, a rich, lime-green throat (RHS 143A) that transitions upward into a band of bright, rich yellow (RHS 7B) that is immediately bordered by a strong, pinky-red eye (RHS 46C).  Slightly raised petal midribs, presenting in a much lighter tone of self peach.  Generously ruffled edges that are defined by a slight, red-gold wire (RS 179A).  Held for breeding purposes by Ron Valente, second generation crosses appear to carry forward the positive attributes of plant height, structure strength and bud count.   Undoubtedly one of the very best plants that Ron ever produced.  


-- Comments:  Consistently formed flowers, excellent branching and bud count, strong performance in my Zone 4 northern garden.  This plant really took off in its third summer here in 2016, with a strong scape and perfectly formed flowers.
