1918-B006-I:12 1921-B014:14 Symposium II rating: 7.5

1923-SPN:347 1928-B:38 Double. 7.5 (Sym. 1921). Pink. Included in descriptive list by vote of directors.

1928-B-d:111 Double type; large; early midseason. Outer petals very large and smooth; clear light flesh-pink, with creamy center frequently streaked with crimson like the tulip, Pride of Inglescombe. Tall, vigorous growth, with strong stems and good foliage. Frequently the stripes are very prominent on the bud or partially open flower, but in some seasons they may be lacking. Rather scant petalage, but is too high-built to be called semi-double type. It has extraordinary finish and beauty in the guard petals, and is a very attractive flower. So well-known and liked, it is included in this list by vote of the Directors in spite of its low rating.
