The bomb double flower opens in shades of rose-pink. The bright pigments are clean and even throughout. The pigments eventually fade to very pale shades by the time the petals drop. The inner segments are slender forming a ball that rises above a saucer of broad guard petals. The attractive flower is pleasing, formal shape and good substance. A dependable variety with a good plant-habit. The increase of this vigorous plant is a bit slow but grows into a good size clump after a few years of planting. It is a good bloomer with ample color on a medium height bush. Medium green leaflets remain attractive for most of the growing season. The stout stem carries the flower close enough to the foliage for a pleasing presentation. The bush keeps its form quite well and staking is typically not required under normal growing conditions. This charming variety is a good performer in the landscape and a fine choice for the sunny border.
