(Also as Mary Baker Eddy.) Ms. 1910. “A violaceous rosy pink, fading desirably until the tips of the petals become nearly white, the whole tinted more or less with heliotrope shades opening up deeper towards the centre in beautiful gradations of color. Somewhat dwarf; about two feet tall; free bloomer, heavy stems.; an unusually strong grower, very upright, and stands heavy storms better than any other plant in the garden. Very compact, and after the blooming season is a good foliage plant. The most original of the double Hollis peonies, except Beauty’s Mask.” (Homer Reed.) Sold by: 6, 10, 16, 32, 48, 49. Grown by: 17, 18, 20, 23, 38, 43, 44, 50.
