Double type; medium size; midseason. Guards light old-rose with cream-white collar and a pinkish crown marked with crimson; mildly fragrant. Medium height; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. “Do not believe this variety is now in commerce. Have bought it several times and always received MONSIEUR JULES ELIE. Think it should be omitted.”—Little. “Many confused this with M. JULES ELIE when voting, hence the rating 8.6, which should not be considered.”—Boyd.
