» English Description

Seibundō Shinkōsha, 1979, Senchinshū, p.95, colour photo, p.230, description: A white, open, informal, incomplete double, large, 10-11 cm across, with thin, translucent petals, particularly towards the edges, which are fluted and waved. The stamens are broken into fascicles by small, erect, creped, centre petals. Leaves, medium size, mid-green, shallowly serrate, margins twisted, reflexed with impressed vena­tion. Originated in Chūbu, Japan. See colour photo & description in Satō, 1975, Chūbu no Tsub­aki, p.88 which erroneously lists this cultivar as ‘Kimigayo’. There is also a cultivar of the name Kimigayo from the Kantō District which has a cylindrical stamen cluster.
