Double type; very large; late midseason. Light old-rose-pink, brighter in the center and tipped on the reverse with silver. Stems weak at base. Average foliage. An enormous flower, compactly built of many crinkled petals, with a perfect rose-bud center. Frequently the collar petals are arranged in a ring of whorls. Rather a coarse flower and a little dull in color. Flower-stems need support. Included in this list by vote of Directors. “Subject to disease.”—Farr.
