Double type; large; late midseason. Light rose-pink with flesh tints toward base of petals; not notably fragrant. Medium height; free-flowering; erect stems. Good foliage. A high-grade peony of compact, globular form whose chief fault is lack of definite distinction. It should not be confused with RACHEL (Terry, 1900), which is quite inferior. “Very fragrant. In my opinion a very beautiful flower and should rate much higher.”—Boyd.
