Double type; large; late midseason. Outer petals very large, graduating smaller and smaller toward a flat, open center which does not show stamens or carpels; outer petals very pale pink at first, shading to ivory-white or pure white in the center, illumined by a yellowish tint in the depths of the flower; richly fragrant. Tall; vigorous; moderately floriferous; stiff stems. Light green foliage. A very scarce variety, seldom seen at its best. The bloom of young and inferior plants have many petaloids with yellowish edges and frequently show greenish white carpels with deep pink tips and a light pink base. It requires some time to become established.
