Hill Top, HT. (J. H. Hill) ('Joanna Hill' x 'Mrs. Verschuren'). Through 'Joanna Hill', this variety inherits many of the 'Ophelia' characters of long shapely buds, vigorous healthy growth and freedom of flower. The blooms carry 35 to 40 petals which are reddish gold on the outside with an inner face of yellow. It is a good garden exhibition type and will be much sought after when known.
