Double type; medium size; midseason. A flat-topped flower which early develops a prominent crown, covering its irregular collar; pale pink, thickly powdered with minute rosy dots, showing an occasional crimson edge on the center petals; fragrant. Medium height; blooms moderately; good stems and foliage. A curious, “double-decked” flower of interesting but scarcely beautiful color. The plant is not always reliable in growth and blooms.
