Double type; large; late. Light rose-pink with a creamy tone, richly tinted with flesh-pink in a deep, rose-like center when fully open; mildly fragrant. Tall; a profuse bloomer; strong stems and good foliage. The flowers are ball-like and compact, with smooth, incurved guards and a rounded center of rather narrow, notched petals. The color is very fresh and similar to, but lighter than that of MARIE CROUSSE. Professor Saunders considers salmon-pink a closer approximation of the color. Mr. Thurlow calls it “one of the very best late peonies we have.”
