Double type; large; midseason. Pale old-rose-pink, with a decided lavender tinge, paling to almost white in the collar; center large and wide-spreading, conspicuously flecked with crimson; fair fragrance. Tall; moderately floriferous; erect stems and foliage. An old sort which is not widely cultivated but popular with some growers who consider it especially distinct and different from any other variety. “Offered by very few growers. Tried it for years and discarded it as not worth garden space.”—Boyd.
