Double type; very large; late. Bright rose-pink, paling with age, and a trifle darker in the deep, cupped center; rich spicy fragrance. Medium height; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. A very large flower of the THÉRÈSE type but brighter in color and with petals held more horizontally. Sometimes the collar is a little weak, giving it a two-story effect, but established, well-treated plants give superb flowers. Awarded Certificate of Honorable Mention at London, Ont., June 16, 1922. “Height 36 to 42 inches.”—Thurlow. “A perfect beauty.”—Boyd.
