Double type; medium size; midseason. Dark crimson, outer petals large and the center composed of smaller overlapping petals mixed with many stamens; faintly fragrant. Very tall; vigorous and free-flowering; blooms held high above the compact foliage on wiry stems. A good red peony with undeniable value for landscape effect. Not very imposing as a cut-flower because of its small size.
