Japanese type flower form; large; mid season. Guards long and broadly cupped, opening very vivid red, becoming crimson with a purple tinge; staminodes violet-crimson, edged buff at tips, shading to creamy pink at base; carpels feathered, pale greenish at base; kernels white; moderate rather pleasing fragrance. Average height; floriferous; stiff stems. Foliage sparse, recurved and narrow, with dark ruddy veins. A very showy variety when first opening, but the purple tinge is objectionable in its late stages. Not a great deal different in appearance from other Japs of similar color.
