*registered by Aden but evidence points to F Shaw

'Midas Touch' was registered in 1978, and is another from Florence Shaw's work with 'Bengee'. The plant is 30 x 36" with 36" flower scapes. The parentage is unknown as with other F. Shaw plants registered by Aden. The color of the leaves is a deep yellow. The intensely corrugated leaves have large undulations and excellent substance. They are also broadly ovate and deeply cupped so that the cordate base nearly disappears. The flowers are near white and flared. Interestingly enough, Mark Zilis lists no seedlings, sports, or related types.
