Double type; large; late midseason. White with a yellow glow from buried stamens, and very conspicuous crimson blotches on central petals; strong fragrance. Tall; very free-blooming; stiff stems. Excellent foliage. A very distinct sort, of cupped form with a collar composed of tufts of petals arranged in little whorls. The crimson spots are exceptionally vivid and give it considerable resemblance to BOULE DE NEIGE, which blooms earlier. “Odor is none of the best.”—Engle.
