Tall; floriferous; thin, wiry stems. Abundant foliage. A highly decorative garden plant, usually blooming in large clusters. A popular variety. “The finest pink single with the possible exception of HELEN (Thurlow) which is not yet rated.”—Little. “Very popular and consequently quite scarce.”—Boyd.
