Lactiflora, late, full double, La France pink. The parents are Mme. Jules Dessert (Dessert 1909) x White Perfection (Auten 1931). The cross was made in 1940. It is extra large in all its parts; plant, leaf, stem, bud and flower. Substance is extra—no coarseness. This has been tested East, Middle West and Far West. Marvin Karrels, after two years of blooming, is enthusiastic. I call it definitely Grand Champion material. Not a fast propagator nor a heavy cropper of blooms but class, grace and plenty of quality.
