This is a low growing variety, topping out at 2 feet with 4-inch (BB bloom size classification) blooms of pink, white centered, cactus-type flowers. Its small stature would be a positive if grown in a pot. Mine was on a border's edge. It survived several years. Tubers were dug up in the fall, dried upside down in the garage, then placed dry in perlite and/or vermiculite filled sacks, and stored in the basement over winter. This cultivar was introduced in 1959.
