Double type; medium size; midseason. Guards pale blush-white of translucent texture; center low, rounded, and compact, of many narrow incurved petals which are wider in extreme center, pale pink near the guards shading through cream and canary to pure lemon-yellow; mildly fragrant. Tall; very floriferous; strong, erect stems. Good foliage. The mixture of pale pink and lemon-yellow in the center is distinctive and most attractive. The variety seems to be steadily gaining in popularity and is reported to be excellent for cut-flower work and especially so for garden decoration.
