Double type; large; late midseason. Dark rose-pink, the petals tipped with lilac; globular form, the outer petals incurved over a hollow center of many stamens and petaloids with yellow edges; good, rose-like fragrance. Medium height; strong, upright growth; moderately floriferous; good stems and foliage. Undoubtedly a good variety, but similar to a great many others. Its color is a shade or two lighter than LAMARTINE (Lemoine). “One of the most distinct peonies. A ring of narrow petaloids, tipped yellow, gives a trifle ragged but very pleasing effect. This variety and FRANCES SHAYLOR are alike except in color.”—Thurlow.
