Double type; very large; late. Guard petals large, undulating, flesh-pink with coppery tints on outer surface; center incurved, flesh-white in collar darkening to cream-pink in center, illumined by a few golden yellow stamens, and sometimes marked by several prominent crimson blotches; not notably fragrant. Dwarf; floriferous; stiff stems. Good foliage. A variety of unusual color, especially when viewed from the back. It is almost full rose type and has a definite bomb form on first opening. “On established plants, usually no crimson markings. Rather medium than dwarf in height.”—Thurlow.
