seedling with the variety Harriet Poulsen (unpatented) of the Floribunda

attractive bright fluorescent pink flowers which are semi-double and borne
in clusters. Plants of the new variety are particularly suited for growing
in planters or window boxes and also are well adapted to greenhouse
forcing.
