Double type; very large; midseason. Clear, light crimson, smooth texture; scentless. Tall; floriferous; strong stems. Broad light green foliage. When opening, displays globular form with broad, round guard petals developing to a rather irregular rose-type bloom. Good color, not especially different from many other reds. Excellent as a cut-flower. “A peculiar shade of dull rosy crimson, distinct in color and form from any other red variety.”—Little. “Much like Felix Crousse and Victor Hugo.”—Sass.
