Double type; large; late midseason. Guards and crown delicate blush-white, the latter marked with a few crimson edges; collar pale canary-yellow; moderately fragrant. Rather tall; floriferous; stems weak. Foliage large. Technically double type, but of distinctly crown appearance. An attractive flower when cut but of little value in the garden because of its sprawling habit. “No good.”—Fewkes. “Evidently rated much too high.”—Boyd.
