Double type; large; midseason. Bright crimson, showing a light midrib on outer petals; center incurved, concealing a few stamens; fragrance not notable. Medium height; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. Unusually good form for a red peony, and the color is clear and lively. Well liked by many and seems to be on the way to wide popularity. “One of the best of the bright dark reds.”—Saunders. “A wonderfully bright color.”—Boyd.
