The flowers are reddish purple with a darker eye. Blooms are fully open, but sometimes one petal is curled inside. Medium size flowers up to 4 inches across. Free flowering. Mid-season blooming type.

Branches are upright and the shrub is a vigorous grower. This variety was called 'Yongkwang' until 1990.
