sinensis (Venus) x Otto Froebel. Plant of very tall upright growth, like a tall sinensis variety. Foliage heavy, dark green, nearer to sinensis than to Otto Froebel. Flowers nearly single, two rows of petals, very bright rose pink; good color; petals nicely rounded. Very finished cup-shaped flower of fair size and fine quality. Season of early sinensis. As with most of these hybrids the pollen is sterile and the plant sets no seed. Award of Merit, Massachusetts Horticultural Society, June, 1928.
