Double type; large; midseason. Dull old-rose with shell-pink glow at the center, becoming more luminous and softer tinted with age; edges of the petals slightly silvered; rounded at first but opens very flat, showing many stamens and a broad wheel-like crown; moderately fragrant. Medium height; vigorous growth; moderately floriferous, but the stems are weak. A variety which is too irregular in its performance to be really good. When well done the bloom is handsome, but most flowers are quite ordinary. “Not as good as SARAH BERNHARDT or MARCHIONESS OF LANSDOWNE.”—Fewkes.
