This has to be one of my favourite Giants. The large petalled bronze blooms have a pinkinsh suffusion. It is a top class exhibition variety doing best when restricted to 2-3 stems per plant and disbudded to 4-5 pairs below the terminal bud. Growing to approximately 1.2 m the flowers can reach up to 38 cm across, often used in Championship winning exhibits.
