Petals are pink along upper margins and apexes, suffusing to soft, orange-pink lower centers and throats. Mature unopened buds are a vivid peach pink similar to the midstripe coloration. Stigmas have four pronounced lobes. Flower color is very striking.

Picturemedium green, upright phylloclades are not as broad as other cultivars. These exhibit an average of 3 marginal axils along each side. Abundant reddish brown apical bristles are evident around flower bases on newer phylloclades. This cultivar appears to lack the reddish or purplish marginal striping common to many Rhipsalidopsis cultivars. This cultivar is around in the USA (and reached Europe from there), but was also mentioned without further description in an Australian garden catalogue.
