Two layers of petals surround a yellow cluster of pollen-bearing stamens. Long, pale pink filaments with yellow stamens arranged in a low laying ring, in center pale pink carpels, the gynoecium apparently normal and fertile. Good plant habit, quite vigorous but slow growing, a dependable bloomer with prolific color on a compact, dwarf bush. Strong, erect stems hold flower close to the foliage canopy, the bush is neatly mounded and holds well against inclement weather events.
