Double type; large; midseason. Creamy white, flushed pale rose-pink on first opening; symmetrical, cupped form with a small tuft in the center and many stamens which diffuse a golden yellow light throughout the flower; mildly fragrant. Medium height; profuse bloomer; stiff stems. Good foliage. Very pretty flowers of the water-lily type which are produced freely and dependably, giving the variety considerable value for garden decoration. “The form of the flower is more semi-double than rose.”—Fewkes.
