Japanese type; large; midseason. Deep rose-red or light crimson guards, held horizontally around a large cluster of staminodes of the same color tipped pink and yellow; pale green carpels with red tips and a pink base; slightly fragrant. Medium height; strong growth; floriferous. Excellent foliage. Frequently “feathers” in the center. A very distinct variety, particularly in the way the guard petals are arranged.
