Single type; large; midseason. Long, oval light flesh-pink petals, paling to white, with a cluster of small yellow stamens and green carpels with vivid pink tips and base; flushed darker pink on the reverse of the petals; fragrance poor. Medium tall, erect plant, with well-set foliage. A desirable landscape variety. The distinctive feature of this variety is the pink flush at the center of the petals after the edges have paled to silvery white. It is never white except at the last stage before the petals fall.
