Early-Midseason blooming JAPANESE flowers are pink, 12cm (4.75″) in diameter, upward facing, and average one to three per stem. Fragrance noted. Guard petals are flat and rounded, and average 4.7cm (1.85″) in width. Flowers possess three smooth, yellow-green carpels with pink, feathered stigmas. Staminodes are pink with white tips, and spatulate in form. No fertility noted. Plants reach 80cm (31.5″) at maturity, and carry broadly cut, green foliage. Foliage at the time of emergence is green. Growth habit is upright, and mechanical support is unnecessary.
