Classic white. Good grower, relatively small flower, but very good for the time. Nice firm flower.

Thanks for bringing back great memories with this, Randy. I used to go to Lines when I lived in Georgia, but I don't recall ever seeing this. Looks like what we would have called a "hard white" in the cut flower business back when. I did have the pleasure of visiting at least once just before the Easter harvest -- entire greenhouses full of C. Easter Glory, all one cultivar, NO MERICLONES, just each plant hand-divided over the decades by Lines family and employees...anyway, every plant in flower at once in huge greenhouses gave such a strong fragrance that I had to walk outside for fresh air (I nearly fainted from the "fumes")! I'm so glad that you continue to document these older treasures here; this is actually the only forum I look at, so you are my "portal on the past" cultivars.
