A frilly double. The colour is a pink ground with a maroon eye and lacing. The lacing is quite narrow, but on the occasional flower it becomes quite wide, reducing the pink ground to a small eye in the centre of each petal; sometimes the lacing breaks down leaving flecks of maroon on the paleo ground. The reverse is pale pink.
A very long flowering pink, from early summer right through to the end of autumn and the blooms have the benefit of being fragrant. The foliage is the typical blue green of the modern pink.
Raised by H.V. Calvert of Lupset near Wakefield in 1972. It produced a sport that became known as 'Laced Treasure'.
Good for cutting.
Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower
