Mid/Late season bloom period. SEMI-DOUBLE flowers open coppery-yellow then turn to brilliant yellow (RHS:9C). One bloom per stem, 7 inches in size (18 cm). Fragrant. Stems droop somewhat under the weight of the large flowers. Petals orangey-red at the base, that color suffused somewhat towards the petal tips, giving an orange hue to the flower, especially at center where the petals are more open. Petals shallowly notched. Pollen-bearing stamens, filaments orange, becoming paler towards the tips. Carpels 5 in number, greenish-yellow, very hairy. Stigmas pink, normal anatomy. No fertility observed. Sheath partial, pinkish-yellow. Foliage green, broadly cut, veins lighter green, petioles purplish-red. Strong upright growth to 24 inches (60 cm). Named to honor the memory of Fu Wang (1942 -2020), a tree peony breeder in China. In 2015, Fu Wang and his colleagues registered four peony cultivars (‘Caiyun Fei’, ‘Ju Fei’, and ‘Mo Lang’ in the Suffruticosa Group, and ‘Xiao Xiangfei’ in the Lutea Hybrid Group). May be marketed under trade name GOLDEN FUWA.
