Deep pink. Parentage not known. This deep, bright pink semi-double blooms with and resembles Minnie Shaylor in form, of which it may be a seedling. Its large petals have a narrow white edge and the blooms are carried on strong, stiff stems about three feet in height, which are well clothed with large, thick, glossy foliage. Its golden stamens bear much pollen and form small, dense centers with small pale green carpels and red stigmas. It withstands storms well and is quite abundant in bloom. Few side buds. Midseason. Seedling # AU 18
