Parentage: sinensis x macrophylla. Tall vigorous plant with heavy stems and very large foliage more like that of macrophylla than sinensis. Flowers very large, up to eight and one-half inches, single, pure white, with a large mass of silky stamens which give the flower a very distinctive character. Season very early—a week to ten days before the beginning of sinensis season.
