Double type; large ;late. Dark rose-pink throughout; a very compact, globular flower, with overlapping petals, evenly graduated from the outside to a small, perfect, rose center; the tips of the petals reflex in the middle of the flower, giving a peculiar shadowy effect, and the outer petals relax with age but keep their incurved cup form; excellent fragrance. Medium height; fairly vigorous and floriferous; stout stems. Short, broad foliage. An excellent dark pink peony, particularly deserving because of its fine form and pure, even color. Described by some as uniform violet-rose. “Somewhat similar to E. G. HILL but much superior.”—Thurlow. “Rating too low. This is really a very superior variety and should carry a rating of 9.0.”—Fewkes.
