Double type; large; late. Guards and well-defined crown bright, light pink, with a collar of shorter creamy petals tinted yellow at base; mildly fragrant. Medium height, floriferous; good stems and foliage. A handsome variety of variable tints but always showing a sharply differentiated collar. Cluster-flowering and excellent for garden decoration. “A beautiful flower when cut but probably not good for the cut-flower trade because of its mixed color.”—Saunders.
