Very early blooming SEMI-DOUBLE flowers are unusually shaped with ruffled and frilled petals throughout, opening pink, then fading to a blend of light pink and cream.

Flowers possess on average three very hairy, green carpels with dark-red stigmas of normal anatomy. Stamens are more than 2cm (0.75”) in length. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 80cm (32”) at maturity, and carry broadly pointed, green foliage with undertones of purple. Foliage at time of emergence is red.
