Herbaceous Hybrid. Parentage: P. emodi x P. mlokosewitschii. Seedlings are indistinguishable from one another and were raised by Saunders under numbers 12185 – 12189. First bloomed c. 1946. Stems to 24 inches of upright growth habit. Leaves are narrow pointed, yellow-green in color, divided like emodi. Single cupped flowers are up facing (unlike emodi), 2 inches in size, and are palest yellow fading to white. No flares present. Two carpels on average, green in color, with normal shaped stigmas. Stamens and abundant usable pollen; filaments pale yellow. Rarely, if ever, produces seeds. Named to reflect the longevity of these seedlings in relative obscurity, and their arrival almost 60 years later in the 21st Century.
