Medium height; very free-flowering; strong stems. Good foliage. A very good red variety similar to KARL ROSENFIELD, but not so bright as either thiat variety or LONGFELLOW. Has an excellent incurved ball form, with overlapping, crinkled, and fringed petals. Good for both exhibition and garden decoration. "No fragrance and not a strong grower in the Atlantic States,"—Boyd.
