Single, medium size flower opens blush, soon fading to white in the sun. Two rows of broad, rounded petals surround a cluster of bright yellow stamens. Elongated stamen sit on pale, rose pink and yellow filaments, the rose pink pigmentation more saturated toward the base, form a cluster that has in center small, pale green carpels with conspicuous, bright rose red stigmas. The rose pigmentation in center imparts a gleam that perfectly contrasts the dominating white and yellow shades of the flower. Satisfying plant habit, vigorous and fair grower, a quite reliable bloomer with ample color on a spreading, medium height bush. Leaning stems may need support for best results in the viewed landscape. The bush is well covered in medium green, semi-glossy foliage. This variety is rarely offered and of understated beauty, well suited for the perennial border.
