Double type; large; midseason. Blooms are borne in clusters, with smaller, saucer-shaped side flowers; pale blush-pink, almost white, with yellow stamens mixed with a few irregular petals in the center; fair fragrance. Medium height; very floriferous; stems strong. Foliage abundant. In some seasons it is decidedly pink, especially on the back of the blooms near the calyx. As usually seen, the flowers are charming and informal and the plant is very graceful. “Terminal flowers on established plants are well filled out. A first-class exhibition bloom, and one of the most beautiful of all peonies.”—Saunders. “A first-class exhibition bloom. The laterals, if not disbudded, will produce semi-double flowers.”—Thurlow. “Often one of our greatest show peonies.”—Brand.
