Double type; small to medium size; late midseason. Light flesh-pink, darkening somewhat in the center, fully double, ruffled and crinkled; fresh, sweet fragrance. Medium height; very floriferous; drooping stems. Good foliage. Considered the same as M. CHARLES LÉVÊQUE. An excellent cut-flower, but not very decorative in garden because of its weak stems. Especially noteworthy for its strong, delicious fragrance. Sometimes has tight buds that do not open. “A very lovely flower, not especially fragrant.”—Saunders.
