DETAILED DESCRIPTION

 First Prize lived up to its name by setting the standard for high-centered classical form. Its huge pointed buds spiral open like a fine ballerina in a costume of shimmering pinks. 

GROWTH HABIT

  The large flowers are carried on stout long stems with tough leaves. Established plants give best bloom in the spring. Long pointed buds open into perfect flowers that are made up of half swirled hues of rose-pink with an ivory pink reverse. All of this on a continually blooming bushy plant with dark green, leathery leaves that provide the perfect foil for its outstanding blooms.
