From the Orpington Nurseries catalog for 1923: “Lilac mauve pallida of similar colouring to Rosalind, but the flowers are of finer form and colour quite distinct. Very early. Standards pale lilac mauve; Falls light reddish mauve. A fine free flowering variety.”

From Treholme Gardens catalog for 1928: “Very deep reddish-mauve-lilac, almost a self. A little deeper than Tamar but not so tall. Of the same color tone as Paulina but larger. A medium sized free flowering variety which is an improvement on Her Majesty.
