Double type; very large; midseason. Dull, light crimson blooms of globular form, with a strong lavender sheen particularly noticeable at the edges of the petals, and prominent yellow stamens; not much fragrance. Tall, strong-growing, floriferous plant, with stiff, erect stems and dull reddish green foliage. A very showy crimson variety, particularly in sunshine. Flower looser and not so bright as Karl Rosenfield, and not particularly good color.
