Japanese type flower form. Mid season. Pink. An exquisite Japanese peony with a double row of guard petals of the finest satiny pink with a heavy comb of short yellow petaloids, three small seed pods and pink stigmas. An ideal Japanese type cut flower and a good keeper, blooming in mid season. Since the name “Ecstasy” has already been used, Ecstasy (Brethour, 1926), for a full double white of great beauty, it will probably be changed but the change has not been received when we go to print.
