Vigorous; fairly floriferous; strong, stiff stems. Dark broad foliage.

Double pompom type opening with a delightfully different blush and greenish blend that slowly fades to white except for one petal on each flower which holds a light green color throughout the life of the flower. Guard petals are usually well formed and regularly spaced as well as being larger than usual and so form a beautiful base for the well formed pompom which holds its shape very well, they are blush when opening. Flowers medium in size. Good plant habit. Introduced by Ernest I. Stahly, Gosehn, Ind., with the above description. Listed by Krekler, 1955.
