Like its husky Quaker namesake, its leaves and flowers are big, and its tall 37 inch (bit sprawly) bush is robust. This nice colored huge early Jap is a deepish little-fading red with its flowers placed fairly well above the foliage. The inch and a half long narrow-bottomed petaloids open a light pinkish, with pointed fourth-inch wide creamy tops. These tops slowly fade to nearly white and their ends twist a bit. The olive pistils with pink tops show some. Seedling # B-19
