Double type; very large; very late. White, with lemon tints in collar and crimson wire edges to a few center petals, outside petals tinged with green; faintly fragrant. Tall; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. Technically double type, but globular. Color delicate and translucent. Blooms so late that it frequently fails to open well; a show flower. “When well done, one of the very finest whites.”—Brand. “Very late and rather poor grower; opens best in water.”—Boyd.
