Received October 30, 2020. Seedling No. 9-11. Parentage: Waltz seedling 16340 F3 x ‘Salmon Dream’. Early season bloom. First bloomed 2014, first propagated 2014. Early bloom season. White flower-in-flower DOUBLE, 1 bloom per stem, size 5 inches (12¾ cm), strong fragrance. Petals ruffled, somewhat folded, but offering a tidy and pleasing presentation. An inner blush glow emanates from the center, produced by reddish edges on petals arising from transformed carpels. Carpels generally absent but may develop, and when so are fertile. Pollen-bearing stamens present, filaments yellow. Staminodal disc obscure. Foliage emerges burgundy, matures to green. Upright growth to 30 inches (76 cm). Mechanical support not needed.
