Double type; large; very late. Very pale old-rose-pink, changing quickly to white, brightened by a ring of yellow stamens and staminodes in the collar; fragrance fair. Very tall; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. It is not a very distinct variety and is not widely distributed. Its chief merit seems to be its very late flowering. “This variety has always appealed to me as very handsome and quite distinct.”—Fewkes.
