Double type; large; early. Dark old-rose, overlaid with a bluish sheen of opaque, glistening quality; strong, agreeable fragrance. Dwarf; floriferous; stout stems. Good foliage. A dependable variety of the M. JULES ELIE and MME. DUCEL type, similar to many of the opaque, violet-pink varieties but surpassing them in finish and stiffness of stems. “Much like MME. DUCEL. Very dwarf and very early.”—Boyd.
