A seedling of the C.sasanqua x C.fraterna cross Yoimachi x an unknown pollen parent, which first flowered in 1992. The plant is fast-growing, has a slender, fastigate, upright form, can set several buds at each leaf axil, and flowers early to late. Flower is single, 6 cm diameter x 1.5 cm deep, having 6-7 recurving, obcordate petals of heavy texture.
