Single type; very large; early midseason. White, with two rows of very long, wide, overlapping petals; center, a broad ring of golden yellow stamens about a group of reddish carpels tipped darker and having a pink line at the base; not notably fragrant. Tall; very floriferous; strong, erect stems. Good foliage. Perhaps the finest of all single white varieties although EXQUISITE is rated 3 points higher. Especially notable for its great size and the very distinct color contrast in its center.
