Double type; large; midseason. Light flesh-pink, becoming flesh-white on opening, showing a rose-like center with golden yellow stamens; rich rose-like fragrance. Medium height; only fairly floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. A flower of the utmost elegance in form and color, but has a bad reputation for blooming. Some authorities claim that its shyness is due to disease and that healthy plants are free and persistent bloomers. “It seems to be almost impossible to get stock of this variety free from nematodes.”—Fewkes. “Very shy bloomer. Much inclined to disease. Almost worthless on that account.”—Boyd.
