Full double; very large flower, opens apple blossom pink, fades to blush pink in the sun. Petal base and inner segments retain color, flower center appears in deeper pink. Broad petals build up high, tailored shape and excellent substance; makes an exhibition quality flower. It is a sumptuous, late season flowering sort adapt to cool, long spring. It does well in Northwest Missouri but is expected to be less reliable further south. Overall good plant habit, vigorous, good grower, with ample color on a spreading, medium height to tall bush. Deep green foliage remains attractive well into the summer. Long stems arch and sometimes break due to the heavy bloom, especially with rain in the opened flower. The presentation benefited by strong support. Very worth the trouble, striking display in the landscape, makes fine stems for the vase.
