Japanese type; medium size; midseason. Cupped guard-petals dark rosy red, with a prominent tuft of pinkish staminodes tipped bright yellow, giving a slightly terra-cotta effect to the center of the bloom; little or no fragrance. Medium height; medium growth; free-blooming. Medium heavy foliage. “With us a rather spreading habit of growth which detracts from its effectiveness.”—Thurlow.
