Akebono, HT. (Kawai) This Japanese cultivar is full of promise. It resembles both 'Mme. A. Meilland' and 'Grand'mere Jenny' with fairly strong colouring and long petals. It could be of exhibition standard at times. The young foliage is quite as red as that of 'Mrs. Sam McGredy', 'Europeana' and 'Violet Carson'.
