D. E. Dark pink. Parentage: Mons. Jules Elie x dark pink seedling of Mons. Jules Elie. With a large globular flower carried on strong, stiff stems, rather dwarf in height, this makes a fine garden plant as well as a good show flower. Its flower is darker than its parent and has an orange shading throughout the entire flower. It is slightly fragrant. It bears the maiden name of that gracious lady, well-known to many of our members, Mrs. Roy G. Gayle of Rockford, Illinois. Quisenberry is pronounced Cushionberry.
