Blooming a little early this year, but again with two flowers (last year's blooming is HERE). The flowers look a little fuller to me this year, but the dorsal is somewhat wonky, oh well, can't win them all. Awarded in 1955, I believe it's from the original grex registered by Clint McDade in 1950. A reliable bloomer with pure white petals, golden throat, and a heavenly scent - it will always have a place on my windowsill! An original, virus-free division that I acquired from the late Plato Matthews.
