Orange yellow buds with medium-long sepals open slowly to large, full flowers that are high centered to cupped and reflexed.  The petals are yellow with coral pink edges before fading to pale yellow and then white.  The flowers are carried on long stems singly or in clusters of up to seven and are excellent for cutting.  The tall upright bushes are almost thornless and have large, semi-glossy, dark green leaves.  Plants are considered disease resistant, heat tolerant, and do well in California.
