Double type; large; late midseason. Petals rounded and cupped at the tips, not pointed, of waxy texture, symmetrically arranged in circular form, pure white, tinted with cream and buff in the center; strong, bitter fragrance. Medium height; floriferous; stems willowy. Foliage scant and clean. A peony of fine form and unusual color, excellent growth and blooming qualities. “A free bloomer on healthy plants.”—Little. “I should call it medium size rather than large.”—Thurlow. “Not as good a grower as many others but a beautiful flower. Inclined to sprawl. Odor unpleasant.”—Boyd.
