Still a first class white single, with large, elegant flowers. Has stiff, vigorous, growth so needs careful early pinching if a compact bush form is desired. This same growth habit also makes it eminently suitable for training in a variety of forms.

Tube: White, slim, fairly long.

Sepals: White with apple green tips, slender, well recurved.

Corolla: White with wispy pale pink veins, neatly 1/4 flared.

Foliage: Mid green with serrated edges to the leaves.
