Pale yellow shading to deeper yellow at the base of the petals and lighting up the bloom with a glow of molten moonlight. Rose-type of the most perfect form and exquisite refinement. Plant medium tall with foliage well distributed and exceptionally clean and healthy. Free bloomer, the clean buds opening perfectly. The pale yellow of the petals fades to white upon opening, especially in bright sunlight but the glow of moonlight thru the flower remains. NOTE: A pink variety was tentatively given the name Moonglow a few years ago but it was never disseminated and to those who may have seen the pink flower bearing that name, they should not confuse it with the one being registered as they are entirely different.
