Very early blooming (just after officinalis, some years blooming at the same time), semi-double and double flowers, two and a half feet tall stems. Color a uniform, delicate peach pink. Flowers seven to eight inches in diameter. Its outstanding characteristic is its earliness of bloom and color, which is distinct. This peony first bloomed for Mr. Shaylor in 1919 and was known as his No. 70. The entire plant but one small division was sold to the late Congressman James R. Mann of Chicago, Illinois, for $100.00 with the understanding that Mr. Shaylor would name it later. Seedling # 70.
