Double type; very large; midseason. Guards and center brilliant rose-pink; collar flesh-pink or pale salmon; flowers regularly built but loose and graceful; strong lemon fragrance. Average height. Strong grower; floriferous; stems bend. Foliage large, light green. A very handsome bloom which is sometimes weak in the collar, but the color is very clear and shows up well, especially in half shade. Petals are generally lighter at the edges, giving a brilliant, silvered appearance to the blooms.
