Received June 11, 2021. Seedling number D20160910-1. Parentage: Paeonia delavayi (yellow flower) x P. rockii subsp. rockii (from Baokang, Hubei Province). First year bloomed 2019. First propagated 2020. Mid/Late season bloom period. SEMI-DOUBLE, 7 inches in size (18 cm), one bloom per stem. Fragrant. The flower opens orange red, then fades paler to light peach tones when in full bloom. Oval red flares located at the base of petals extend 30 % of petals’ length, the edges lightly bleeding towards the edges contributing the peach tones to the mature flower. Petals have good substance, and are moderately notched at center. Pollen-bearing stamens at center, filaments yellow at the base, red at the tips. Average of 5-6 carpels, greenish-yellow, very hairy. Stigmas yellow with normal anatomy. No fertility observed. Sheath partial, pink. Leaf morphology is between that of P. delavayi and P. rockii subsp. rockii. Leaflets are narrow-pointed and resemble willow foliage. Flowers are held erect on strong pedicels, coordinating well with the plant’s foliage. Upright growth to 47 inches (120 cm). Named for the flowers, which are like the glow of the setting sun. May be marketed under trade name GOLDEN SUNSET.
