Full double, variable semi-double on younger plants or smaller stems, large, light pink petals with excellent substance throughout, broad guard petals surround the narrower inner petals. Usually one flower per stem. Stamens sparse, a thin ring is found between the two levels of the flower and another surrounding the carpels at center, forming a full flower type that until the recent decade or so was limited almost entirely to cultivars of later opening cultivars of the Lactiflora Group. Carpels are softly hairy, usually abortive, only sometimes entire and capable of bringing seeds to maturity. The plant is vigorous in growth, and gives a good rate of increase. Strong stems of medium to tall height are clothed in luxuriant bluish green leaflets. The stems stand well against wind and weather, even in the open field. Promises good cut flower qualities.

Herbaceous Hybrid Parentage: 'Salmon Dream' x 'Pink Vanguard'. Pollen fertile; seeds when normal carpels are pollinated. Seedling № 3039.
