CASABLANCA (Lins, 1942) - Double - White - Late. Height 40". Full double pure white. Extremely large flower of fine form. Stiff extra strong stems. Giant foliage all the way down. Bulletin 90.
CASCADE (Origin Unknown) - Japanese - White - Midseason.
CASHMERE (Origin Unknown) - Chiyo-kagami - Japanese - Midseason.
CATHEDRAL (Origin Unknown) - (HANA-NO-SATO) - Japanese - Deep Pink - Midseason. Height 30". Slight fragrance. Large, vivid dark rose-pink guard petals, with narrow, lighter edges; compact center of long, pale pink petaloids with pointed tips and yellow at the base; reddish stigmas; slightly fragrant. Free blooming; foliage dark green. This is generally admitted to be of the Jap type; there are no vestiges of anthers on the central petals which are rather petaloids than staminodes. This would make it anemone type, strickly speaking, but many other Japs have similar character so it is extremely difficult to be absolutely consistent in this matter. Midseason.
