Double type; large; very late. Pale old-rose-pink, darkening toward center; moderately rose-scented. Tall; floriferous; stems strong but lax at base. Good light green foliage. Globular form at first, developing a hollow center of regularly arranged petals. A good flower of uncommon color and no serious faults. See color illustration. “Broad, rounded, and well-imbricated petals make this a flower of unusual refinement and character.”—Little. “Very tall; very fine. Strong and free. Mr. Brand and I have seen this variety 5 feet high in my garden.”—Boyd.
