Received December 15, 2020. Seedling number: NB-SH55. Parentage: ‘Lavender Hill’ x ‘Yukidoro’. First bloomed 2008, first propagated 2010. Early/Midseason bloom. DOUBLE, 1 bloom per stem, size 6-7 inches (15-18 cm). White, but palest pink blush when opening during cold seasons. Pale red flares extend 20% of petals’ length, but often not readily visible under passive observation. Guard petals generally rounded, lightly notched. Inner petals ruffled, somewhat crenulated. Pollen-bearing stamens embedded among petals at center, filaments red at the base, becoming yellow towards the tips. Three or 4 carpels, pale green, sparsely hairy. Stigmas white with normal anatomy. Fertile. Sheath white, complete. Fragrant. Foliage green, lightly washed purple, more intensely towards the edges. Growth to 48 inches (122 cm). Named for the white color and the surface texture of the petals which catches sunlight and glitters as if dusted by diamonds.
