Parentage Colchicine treated Gauguin x Colchicine treated Hephestos. First year bloomed 1993. This shrimp-colored single tree peony blooms have notched petals and deeper peach center flares. Good substance, stamen, pollen and seeds. 20-30 inches in height, vigorous, medium green foliage, blooms midseason to late. Named in honor of and with permission of retired rocket scientist, Harry Alden King. His book, The Pure Golden Light of Love’ has persuaded me to strive to develop the elusive colors of peonies, even blues. With God’s love, anything is possible. Photo on file. Seedling # Z1523
