Mid-season, Light pink. A distinctive large-flowered single, with pale pink guards which turn white. The carpels are smooth, pale green, with pink stigmas. The stems are green and fairly tall. It has a very definite embossed waxiness about its petals, which keep folded into characteristic shape for a long time. It develops a delightful twist as it unfolds and matures, but the petals never fold back even in strong sunlight. Its name is suggested by having seen the blooms, rose bowl in shape, holding rain with stamens and stigmas appearing to float on the surface.
