Double, dark red, with fine foliage that holds its color until late in the fall. Very good grower with stiff stems and well proportioned flowers that hold well in cold storage, color better than Felix Crousse but not quite as good as Philippe Rivoire, but a better grower than either. It was originally carried under number 7-32. Seedling # 7-32.
