    'Perianth segments broadly ovate, blunt, fairly prominently mucronate, pure white, spreading or a little inflexed, with margins creased, overlapping 1/3; inner segments narrower, more strongly inflexed, with margins wavy; corona broad disc-shaped, ribbed, with mouth 6-lobed and rim minutely dentate. Resembles 'White Sentinel' but with the corona more obviously disc-shaped. Was a Division 2 until 1937.'
