Double type; very large; early midseason. Rose-pink, paling at tips of petals, and outer edge of flower occasionally flecked with crimson near center; fragrance not notable. Tall; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. A very well-finished bloom of excellent form and texture, lasting well when cut. Some authorities consider LA VERNE a synonym. “A fine variety not yet appreciated.”—Saunders. “LA VERNE and PINK BARONESS SCHROEDER are quite distinct from this.”—Fewkes. “One of the showiest and most beautiful of ‘baby’ pinks.”—Peterson (of Chicago).
