Anemone type; medium size; early. Guards dark old-rose, collar of narrow buff petals. Develops a wide-spreading crown same color as guards; fragrant. Average height; very floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. An excellent garden subject and much used for cutting because of the smallness of the flower and its striking tricolor effect. “Often prominently marked crimson.”—Little. “A very distinct and interesting variety. Should rate at least 8.0.”—Boyd.
