Double type; very large; midseason. Gigantic outer petals with a jagged edge; pale pink, flushed with rose-pink, and shading to rosy white in the center of the flower, fading almost white with age; it develops a large, flat crown of giant petals, surrounding a wild-rose center of many long stamens and rudimentary carpels with crimson tips. Tall; upright growth; free-blooming. Good foliage. An enormous, shaggy flower of great beauty, although lacking any claim to regularity or neat finish.
