Double type; large; midseason. Pinkish white, paling to white in center, with a sprinkling of tiny old-rose splashes, tufted in center, and showing a good deal of yellow at base of petals; not very fragrant. Dwarf; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. An old sort, popular with a few, but not widely known or distributed. It seems to be superseded by other varieties of similar color and better form. “Very large, flat flowers of coarse substance that develop well on show table but lack fine texture. Very dwarf.”—Little.
