Single type; medium to large; midseason. Two rows of undulated petals, rose-pink at first, fading almost white; small tuft of yellow stamens in center; carpels ruddy green; dark rose tips and pink kernels at base; bitter odor. Dwarf; floriferous; stems stiff; blooms in clusters. Foliage narrow and wavy. Pretty in the landscape for its varying shades of pink, almost the same shade as LA FRAICHEUR, but the carpels are different. LA FRAICHEUR is larger, more floriferous, and taller.
