Double type; large, midseason to late. The flat blooms open soft pink, fading white tinted flesh; good rose fragrance. Tall; free-blooming; strong stems; sturdy habit. Foliage good. A promising variety especially desirable for its pleasing rose fragrance. “Petals have good substance, not coarse. Fragrance not marked but pleasant. Stems about 36 inches tall and inclined to bend without being weak. Foliage light green and rather broad. Strong grower with me. No inclination toward disease. This with LORCH and GRETCHEN seems to be the best of the Goos & Koenemann varieties. It is valuable in Virginia as it makes a good companion to SARAH BERNHARDT and is a sure bloomer which is what we need in “the lates” in this section. It well deserves a place in any good collection.”—Peyton.
