Double type; large; very late. Pale old-rose-pink, with distinctly purple shading at the base of the petals; incurved globular form; not notably fragrant. Tall; floriferous; stiff stems. Good foliage. A comparatively new sort of distinct color and excellent habit. Not widely distributed but seems to be attaining a fair degree of popularity. “I think that it will never be a popular shade.”—Thurlow.
