Double type; very large; late midseason. Light old-rose, with flesh-pink tones in center and collar, with occasional narrow red edges on outer petals; delicious fragrance. Medium height; fairly floriferous; stems usually adequate. Good foliage. A well-shaped flower of cupped form with symmetrically graduated petals of translucent texture. Established plants have stiff stems and broad foliage. Good both for cutting and garden effects. “One of the most intoxicatingly sweet peonies we have.”—Mrs. Edward Harding. “Large flowers; delicious fragrance; stout stems. Very lovely.”—Boyd. “Think in ten years this will be recognized as one of the ten greatest peonies.”—Little.
