Rose type, very large bloom, color white, pleasing odor, stiff stems, vigorous grower and early, Although the color is white, it is not a dead white as in Festiva Maxima, but slightly tinted, giving it a very pleasing quality. The general character of the flower is much after the Baroness Schroeder type, but unlike that variety it is very early, blooming at the same time as Festiva Maxima. This peony awarded a silver medal by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.
