The fragrant, full double flower opens vailed in pink, soon fading to snow white in the sun. The large flower is thickly furnished with petals, the broad outer petals enclose many layers of segments that grade narrower inward, forming a large ball. Mostly free of red stipple, the flower is of good form and substance. The bush has a satisfying plant habit, it is quite vigorous and a dependable bloomer. It produces ample color on a broad, tall bush within a few years of planting. The main flower and side buds are presented on a long stem that sprawls with the heavy flower, requiring mechanical support. The bush is well covered in glossy, deep green foliage which remains healthy until fall here in NW Missouri. This cutter furnishes fine stems for the vase and is a good choice for the cut flower garden and commercial applications.
