Flower form: Double
Height: Tall
USDA zone: 2 to 5
Item number: 5495


Full double; large flower, opens medium pink, fades to light pink in the sun. Broad petals, low profile form, attractive shape, loose but good substance. It is a gorgeous, very late season flowering sort adopted to cold climate and long spring. Somewhat unreliable in Northwest Missouri and is not expected to perform well south from here. Good plant habit, vigorous, good grower, with ample color on a spreading, tall bush. Deep green foliage remains attractive well into the summer. Long stems arch with rain in the opened flower, the presentation benefited by support; striking display in the landscape, makes fine stems for the vase.
