Late blooming, a sure opener, and stands up as well in sudden hot spells. Erect habit, not extra large, recommended for garden effect and where hot weather spoils the late kinds. Rather flat bloom, higher in center, three center petals forming a hollow ball till flower is full blown. Light pink, with unusual markings of red, and unusual form of flower. Honorable Mention, American Peony Society, Des Moines, 1924.
