Double type; large; late midseason. Crimson with a decidedly purple cast; not fragrant. Medium height; very prolific; strong stems. Good foliage. An unusually symmetrical flower for its color but, like most reds, it is not always full or well shaped. It is several shades darker than Karl Rosenfield or Mary Brand and much bluer than either. “Much overrated. A poor grower with me and a vile color.”—Boyd.
