Double type; very large; midseason. Enormous, long petals of pale, translucent, old-rose-pink, paling toward the base and illumined by a golden yellow glow in the depths; not particularly fragrant. Medium height; floriferous; strong stems. Heavy foliage. Truly splendid in form, texture, and color. It is supreme for exhibition but well-developed flowers are too heavy for the stems outdoors, particularly in wet weather. “The flowers fade quickly in bright sunlight.”—Fewkes.
