Double type; very large; late. Flesh-pink, darker in center and paling at the tips of the petals; moderately fragrant. Tall; moderately floriferous; strong, spreading stems. Good foliage. Compact, flat flowers of considerable substance, well liked by some but not very popular or distinct. Described by Professor Saunders as pale lilac-rose, which would be rose-pink or old-rose pink according to the present color nomenclature, depending upon the strength of the lilac tone.
