A brilliant dark red anemone Japanese type. Center at first darker than guards. Later changes to same color, and a distinct narrow white line appears on the outside of the petaloids, running from the base along the center for about two-thirds length, the stripe widening and irregular at its upper end. Medium sized blooms, rose fragrant, carried on tall, stiff slender stems. A very distinct and beautiful variety.
