Seedling # None. Garden name has always been “Jr. Miss.” Double lactiflora. Parentage Laura Dessert x unknown. First bloomed (guess) about 1972, received from Roy in 1978. Medium pink, lighter in dry weather. Very tight full double bud. This full double flower has no carpels or stamens. Does not always open well; it must have cool weather or ample moisture to open to perfection. 40″ height, good stem strength, holds flower well even when wet. Very late, slow to establish and increase, good foliage.
