Double type; large; midseason. Blush-white, cupped guards, darker on outside, surrounding an irregular collar of short petals edged red and mixed with stamens, finishing with a wide-expanded center full of short overlapping petals and a few stamens which give the flower a slight yellow suffusion; fairly fragrant. Medium height; fairly floriferous; adequate stems. Good foliage. A large, shallow flower of particularly delicate color which often develops deep cream tones, which Mr. Shaylor described as “tea color.”
