mauve pink RHS 74B suffusing to RHS 74 C. Flower diameter is about 6.7 cm compared to Evita's 5.6 cm diameter. Avalon’s flowers only stay open eight days, which is shorter than its progenitor ‘Evita’, which has flowers lasting 11–12 days. ‘Avalon’ is self- fertile with about 20% viability.

PBRgrowth habit is erect and sturdy. Phylloclades are longer and wider than 'Evita'. Phylloclades have a diploid (2n) epidermis and a tetraploid (4n) sub-epidermis making 'Avalon' resistant to phylloclade drop and stem breakage. 'Avalon' is self- fertile with about 20% viability. These F1 seedlings resemble 'Avalon' as do the F2 seedlings.
