Full double; large flower, opens medium pink, fades to light pink in the sun. Layers of broad petals, successively grading smaller toward center, segments loosely arranged, makes a low silhouette bloom, attractive shape. It is a gorgeous, very late season flowering sort adopted to cold climate and long spring. Rather 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.
