Double type; large; late. A variable flower, opening pale rose-pink and showing a ring of prominent stamens; center light, almost white, and spreads open in a hollow cup-like fashion, disclosing stamens and carpels in the extreme center; moderate, bitter odor. Dwarf; floriferous; wiry stems. Foliage narrow, light green. At its best, it is charming, giving a softly graduated harmony of pale pink tones of great beauty. Young plants produce very ragged flowers.
