Double type; large; midseason. Bright crimson, intensified by golden yellow stamens near center; not notably fragrant. Rather dwarf; fairly floriferous; strong stems. Excellent foliage. One of the most popular red peonies because of its distinct, fadeless color and general dependability, both for cutting and garden decoration. It would be better if it bloomed more freely and if the flowers were always symmetrical. “Delicate but pleasing fragrance. Early midseason.”—Boyd.
