Double type; large; midseason. White, illumined by many golden stamens hidden under the petals and by a bright tuft of them in the center when fully open; not notably fragrant. Medium height; free-flowering; stiff stems. Excellent foliage. A very handsome flower of perfect form and delicate, lacy quality. It is reported to be disappointing to some, but established plants are claimed to be excellent. The stock has been scarce and very closely divided since its introduction. Awarded special prize of $100 at the National Show at Cleveland, Ohio, June 5-6, 1918. “Much like ENCHANTERESSE, but a better grower.”—Boyd.
