Tokyo Delight - from Duchy of Cornwall, March 1998
Toyko Delight has proved itself to be a thoroughly recommendable lacecap, which would be an asset to any mixed border or shrubbery. The white ray flowers are generally neatly arranged around a dome of fertile blue florets, but as exposure to sunlight continues the sepals of the ray flowers become more and more densely freckled with crimson. Eventually they turn over, displaying a rich plum reverse.
