Very large flower of fine form, lasting over a long period, carried on stout well branched stems. A unique variety, highly recommended.”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog for 1939: “36”  Early, very fragrant. A gigantic silvery white flower, with a beautifully veined green-gold throat and a striking yellow beard. One of the largest whites and entirely different form others in tone, form and marking. A real beauty”.
