Received October 30, 2020. Seedling No. 75-68A. Parentage: ‘Majesty’s Favor’ x ‘Lavender Whisper’. First bloomed 2017, first propagated 2018. Early/Mid bloom season. Pale pink to blushed ivory SINGLE, 1 or 2 blooms per stem, 6 inches in size (15¼ cm). Subtle soft-lavender flares consist more of an infusion of pigment, rather than a typical strongly demarcated flare. They extend 15-20% of petals length, imparting a pleasing soft delicacy to the flower. Guard petals rounded with a shallow central notch, held cupped, width 2 inches (5 cm). Inner petals becoming ruffled. Fragrant. Average of 3 carpels, green, very hairy. Stigmas pink with normal anatomy, fertile. Pollen-bearing stamens, filaments pink at the base, yellow towards the tip. Partial staminodal disc consists of a few projections, pink. Foliage emerges burgundy to green. Upright growth, height 30 inches (76 cm). Mechanical support not needed.
