Double type; very large; late. Bright rose-pink, with much blue —almost a mauve-pink—paling toward the tips of the petals whose serrated edges give the flower a crisp appearance; odor not pleasant. Moderately tall; fairly floriferous; stiff stems. Dark foliage. Has much the silvery appearance of M. JULES ELIE, but the color is livelier and its texture less opaque. At its best it is a heavy-built flower, closely incurved and compact, of fine globular form. Its keeping and shipping qualities are worthy of note. “The old description said ‘violet-rose’ which comes nearer the color.”— Saunders.
