Double type; large; late. High-built blooms with immense guards of pale rose, a collar of flesh-white, and a slightly darker shade in the compact, rose-like center; fragrance very faint. Tall; floriferous; strong stems. Dark, glossy foliage. An exceedingly impressive flower of globular appearance, and while it is decidedly pink on opening, it becomes almost white with a greenish tint at the base of the petals. Generally considered a reliable late sort which opens its buds well. “I consider this the best I have seen of Shaylor’s later introductions.”—Thurlow. “Very large, beautiful flower but no fragrance.”—Boyd.
