APS rating 6.8. Bomb type; pure milk-white, occasional crimson flecks. Midseason; fragrant; medium height; free bloomer; buds in clusters. Does well in California as well as anywhere else. Just think, this Peony is over 100 years old and right now it is more largely planted for the cut flower market than any other. This shows it reliable. “One of the best every day whites.” It ignores abuse.
