Double type; very large; midseason. Long, symmetrically arranged petals of creamy white with a faint glow of pale lemon in the depths; almost always has a wire edge of crimson on some center petals, though it may be lacking; pleasant, bitter odor. A very scarce sort, but the flowers observed were magnificent, much of the PASTEUR, JUBILEE, and LA ROSIÈRE form. It is fully double, but occasionally shows narrow petaloids in the extreme center with a tiny orange or scarlet fleck in the extreme heart of the flower. No stamens were discoverable in any of the flowers examined. The sepals were generally strongly edged with red.
