Petioles more or less hairy. Flowers, single, pink (Neyron Rose 623/1 or Spinel Red 0023/1-3). Petals very broad and widely opened, strongly wavy at apex. Staminal tube a little widened at apex with delicate wavy filaments. Early to mid-season blooming. Its name alludes to its early flowering, pink blossoms. An old cultivar of the Kansai District, Japan. Note: This is not a sport of Rōgetsu in spite of its name.
