Double type; large; late midseason. Opens pale pink, changing to white with yellow suffusion in collar; develops a hollow, symmetrical center and bears a few faint red lines; mildly fragrant. Tall; very floriferous; strong stems. Heavy dark foliage. Blooms retain their excellent form, and the habit of the plant gives it value for garden decoration. Does well everywhere and is very popular. Resembles BARONESS SCHROEDER except for crimson touches. “One of the best whites.”—Saunders.
