Parentage: ‘Pastelorama’ x ‘Pastelegance’. Advanced generation herbaceous hybrid. First bloomed 2008, first propagated 2010. Very large pink full DOUBLE with well-formed flowers, sometimes also a side bud or two. Flower size 8 inches (20 cm) or more. Two rows of large flattened guard petals, inner petals ruffled, filling the entire flower. Carpels average 3 in number, green, sparsely hairy, with light red stigmas. Disc near obscure, but a few cream projections may be visible. Pollen-bearing stamens distributed throughout petals, but concentrated toward carpels. Filaments yellow. Primary flowers often have abortive stigmas but will on occasion produce seeds. Side buds more reliably produce seed. Has complete bud covers which protect against rain damage of developing flowers. Relatively short plants with excellent sturdy stems that carry the large flowers without supplementary support. Flowers may be borne one per stem some years, or with 2-3 sidebuds other years. Plants have wide deep green foliage to the ground, upright growth, height 28 to 30 inches (71-76 cm).
