Japanese type flower form; small; mid season. Cupped, flesh-pink guards surrounding a center of narrow, wax-white petaloids, tipped with red, and greenish carpels with ruddy tips; not fragrant. Medium height; blooms freely; stems and foliage good. Pretty flowers borne in clusters of charming color effect, but they lack size and distinction. “Think this is rated much too high.”—Fewkes.
