A five-petalled red flower, with a blue and white complex cane center, is supported by two opposing millefiori buds spaced by two burgeoning buds, one white and one blue, and protruding green sepals. The blooms are gathered on a bed of leaves atop long stems. A large blue and red torsade, with a band of white, encircles the bouquet. Clear ground.
