Full double; large, opens crimson red. The color fades with age, imparting a frosted appearance. Well furnished with petals, the segments fluted and frilled. Good plant habit for a cut flower variety, vigorous, reliable bloom, ample color and a spreading, tall height bush. Side buds extend the bloom season. Medium green foliage remains healthy for most of the growing season. Long stems sag, especially with rain in the opened flower, must have support for flowering in the viewed landscape. Great choice for the cut flower garden.
