Double type; medium to large; midseason. Pure white, with yellow glow in depths; petals very smooth and firm, built into a rounded, semi-globular form with a tulip-like center; fine crimson edge on a few central petals, and the guard petals are splashed with maroon; moderate, bitter fragrance. Average height; floriferous; crooked stems, bearing flowers in clusters. Foliage narrow, incurved, dark green. A flower of glorious form in all stages, but needs careful disbudding to bring it to exhibition size, and the stems need support.
