Double, medium size flower opens a blush pink, fading to white when mature. The delicate lavender-pink tint is more durable and pronounced in cool spring climate. Broad outer petals are incurved, slightly wavy and of leather-like texture, with the segments grading narrower inward. Generously finished with petals, the flower is of high silhouette, globular form and of excellent substance. The bush has a satisfactory plant habit, it is vigorous, of a moderate increase, and dependable bloom. It produces ample color on a spreading, medium height bush within a few years of planting. The flowers are borne close enough to the foliage for a well-proportioned presentation. The leaves are deep green and remain healthy throughout the growing season. Strong stems lean with the open flower, if subjected to rain. Light support is suggested for the best results. This variety furnishes fine stems for the vase. Adaptive to many uses, it is a great choice for the cut flower garden and a great specimen plant for the near border.
