Double type; large; midseason. Light rose-pink, loosely formed, showing stamens which blacken quickly; it develops a crown slowly, and irregularly showing flesh-pink tints and prominent crimson edges; odor like chrysanthemums. Medium height; floriferous; strong stems. Very good foliage. A dependable peony for general utility. The flowers are irregular but their worst fault is the discoloration of the stamens. “It would be more correct to say this variety is semi-double or semi-rose.”—Fewkes. “Odor not pleasant.”—Boyd.
