The flower opens a full rich cream, aging to soft cream in the Standards and the falls to a cream white center edged in lemon which js enhanced by the intense ruffling of the whole flower. Excellent branching, a good producer. It blooms at the same time as Arlene Wood and as stated above, cannot be told from each other except in color.
