Double type; large; late midseason. Petals incurved, overlapping at first, forming a large, compact white ball; later, the enormous outer petals unfold, the evenly graduated inner petals form a rose-like center of crisp texture; a wire edge of crimson appears on a few petals and there is a faint lemon tint in the center when fully open; fragrance mild and sweet. Medium height; moderately floriferous; stems strong. Foliage good. Similar to, but not as large as LE CYGNE, or quite so pure in color. Excellent habit for garden use.
