Early blooming DOUBLE flowers are light pink coloration on inner petals, transitioning to cream and powder white at petal edge and on guard petals. Flowers are 17cm (6.7”) in diameter, upward facing, and average one to two per stem. Guard petals are frilled and ruffled. Flowers possess on average three very hairy, green carpels with dark-pink stigmas of normal anatomy. Stamens are between 1.25-2cm (0.5-0.75”) in length. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 95cm (37.5”) at maturity, and carry broadly pointed, green foliage with undertones of purple. Growth habit is upright; mechanical support is unnecessary.
