Unusual exotic color here. Rich purple-ish mahogany with an overlay of silvery white, creating a spectacular veined appearance. Florets are wide open and beautiful wavy ruffles, and good medium substance, with a sparkling sheen.

Under the current color chart, I would classify it a 596. The color is a medium pinkish grey. Subtle light specking and veining throughout, maybe puts it as a 597.
Pries Ausra is an easy grower, and just lovely! It has light wavy petals, the upper petal is quite distinct, being large pronounced oval shape. Thanks to Antanas Markevieius, for providing the wonderful photo! Sometimes a hard color to get to show right in pictures.
Sometimes there is confusion between Natashenka and Pries Ausra. Just remember,
Natashenka = mid brown and quite ruffled.
Pries Ausra = grey and light wavy petals.

(also know as : Sokoladnica)
A luxurious milky pinkish grey, with a small cream throat, showing deeper peppering and some light veining of the deeper color spilling out of the throat and onto the lip petals. Heavy substance and wavy ruffles adds to its popularity.

[CH 16-65] (Buckeye Beauty x Star Performer)
A unique glad deserves an equally unique name. For me, I see an overwhelming look of charcoal with an underlying glow. Deep rusty brown on the outer petals blending to cream in the center. The cream is overlaid with the rusty brown. Cream midrib flares are quite distinct. But what makes this little lady truly remarkable, is that there are pumpkin orange flames on the reverse sides of the petals. This glowing color flirts with you as the buds unfurl and the parade begins. Lightly ruffled 4 inch florets with medium substance, and formal placement, last and last, on spikes with at least 20 buds, holding 7 open, and 5 in color. Medium height plants with nice straight stiff stems. Florets were chosen for corsages, boutonnieres, and long stem arm bouquets, for our Son Marcus and Sabine’s Wedding.

New to our catalog. Rich deep brown. The round, waved florets,
should be great in the garden and wonderful in the vase and basket.
