A lovely soft pink that really stands out with the white on the falland the mostly white beard. Very strudy, does not fall over in heavy winds even in full bloom. Has a subtle frangrance, but when in full bloom it fills the air.

described as:
S-pink F-warm white edged pink B-white,tangerine in throat
