Anemone type; large; midseason. Broad white guard petals, sometimes marked crimson on outside, and smaller pale canary-yellow petals in the center, lighter at the tips when first opening, and fading to pure white. The introducer calls it “rose,” that is, double type, but the flowers observed were certainly not; however, the carpels seemed inclined to “feather” or develop as petals, and possibly well-grown specimens would show true double form. Crimson lines are frequent in the center, but some flowers lack them.
