Medium tall, (34″). Flower well above foliage on very strong stem. Color, deep pink, similar though darker than Blanche King. Bud, round, large with very large smooth guard petals opening around inner ball of guard petals arranged in symmetrical whorl. Partial open, flat cup rose form. Finishing form lifts inner cup of petals, similar to guards, with center well filled with massed inner petals. Yellow stamens concealed throughout petals give rich glow to the self color of all petals. Early midseason bloomer. NOTE: We have seen this bloom and have three plants in our garden and can attest to its beauty and desirability.
