Parentage – unknown – chance seedling – might be of Mons Jules Elie. First bloom 1974 – a full double, all subsequent years blooms single. Single light pink lactiflora – early to midseason bloom, no fragrance. 32 inches in height, many stems, stiff and wirey. A very nice plant but not valued for its beauty of flower but rather for the hybridizer. A proven seed parent for the Itoh hybrids. Highly fertile both ways with large seeds in great abundance. An apparent break-through for the hybridizer. Seedling # S 172
