Help w/ ID for this Yellow/Bronze

penelope(Z6 KY)April 17, 2012

This just starting blooming today in Western KY, zone 6. It is about 32" H. It has 4 buds and the beard is Orange.

Someone once said that is was similar to 'Naranji'. The only picture that I can find is on HIPS and it is not that great of a match. Any ideals??

Thanks so much, in advance for all the wonderful advice.

Hi Penelope!

Is that one you by any chance got from me at a swap?

I know pic colors are often 'off' a bit, but if it came from me, it is Honey Glazed.

I forgot to add...I also might have traded a NO ID what I called gold over brown. 'not' looking for an ID on that one...don't want to highjack your thread.

Yes, I have both of those that came from you. I do have 'Honey Glazed' marked now. The 'gold over brown'- I'm still searching thru pictures.

This one above 'Yellow/Bronze' is taller, probably a historic. I have no ideal were it came from.

I'm working on lots of historicals - trying to plant like colors together. Everyday it's a surprise! You never know what will bloom - what fun!!!

Good to hear from you,

Oops, red beard makes these names improbable unless they also photograph incorrectly.

California Gold
Casque d"Or

Thanks Iris gal,
From some other pictures I have, it looks the most like 'Casque d'Or'. I remember looking at that one, but can't remember why now!!! LOL

I'll try to get a different camera angle this weekend.

Thanks again,
