Semi-double type; medium size; midseason. Several rows of long, pointed, white petals symmetrically arranged about a central cluster of golden yellow stamens; not notably fragrant. Medium height; very free-flowering; stems wiry. Foliage small. Blooms in huge clusters, each flower like a many-pointed star. One of the most distinct, and trustworthy varieties, especially good for garden decoration. Very striking. “One of the loveliest peonies for the garden.”—Saunders. “Should not be disbudded.”—Mrs. Harding.
