Red blend.  Large, double (17-25 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.

Notes:
From Eric Timewell: Mrs C.E. Prell, born Caroline Ivy Chave, was the wife of Gundowringa grazier Charles Ernest Prell. The Prells were friends, possibly relations, of Olive's [Fitzhardinge] father, the Fitzhardinges and their daughter Prudence. The Prell's daughter Peggy was a bridesmaid at Prudence's wedding and her parents were guests. See comments for more.
