A seedling from Avalanche and Mildred May. Height 38 inches. Good dark GREEN FOLIAGE RIGHT TO THE GROUND. Stems are strong and stiff; it holds flowers very erect. Midseason to late. Stands heat, wind and rain well. Bud is pure white. Looks well before completely open. Flower opens well and is a rose type with about six rows of guard petals, which holds its shape throughout the life of the flower. Most of the blooms are pure white, but occasionally there are a few flecks of red on two or three of the center petals. These are hardly noticeable. Has some fragrance. I have tested this peony for the last 10 years. I think I have finally got the peony worthy of the name Peace. Note: This Registration Was Filed In 1955 To Be Introduced In 1965. See Gist — Variety Check List 1956.
