Double type; large; late midseason. Blush-white of waxy texture with a faint pink center and very narrow crimson edges to a few petals; a compact, generally incurved flower with the tips of the outer petals recurved from its ball-like center; fragrance strong but not sweet. Medium height; a fair bloomer, with adequate stems and good foliage. A well-regarded white variety for either cutting or garden decoration. It is generally considered identical with ALBÂTRE.
