Early to early midseason. Large bright evenly formed petals cupped in form. Center composed of a conspicuous cluster of long filamentous petaloids, which stand out from the face of the flower like bristles of uniform bright clear yellow. Carpels bright green with pink stigmas, making an attractive flower of rare beauty and color combination. Plant strong, vigorous grower with abundant foliage and tall strong stems holding the flowers erect in rain and wind. Flowers of extraordinary good substance making it ideal for cutting as well as being attractive in the garden over a long blooming season. Universally admired by the ladies especially, hence the name it bears of a prominent flower-minded lady of Philadelphia, who wins many prizes with her exhibits at the local flower shows.
