Double. Late midseason. Medium pink.. No parentage given. Beautiful, large, rose type, medium pink that is somewhat like Mrs. Livingston Farrand. The tips of the petals and petalodes are silver shading to a deep rose at the base. Holding the same color, the large guard petals diminish to small petalodes at the center which are finely cut, giving the flower a lacy look. It is slightly fragrant. The stems are strong and the foliage good green. Good grower. Col. Nicholls valued this one highly. Seedling # N 1142.
