Very early. An Officinalis Hybrid, blooming with Officinalis Rubra. Large double bloom with rather narrow center petals approaching the incurved bomb type. The color is a glowing rich pink with a distinct and unusual salmon cast. The plant is a vigorous, healthy grower producing freely the flowers on long strong stems. This new variety, Salmon Beauty, is the first double to show this color, an entirely new color in double peonies. Both in the garden and in the exhibit hall, it is so unusually striking that it stands out among all the others. It will be wanted especially by those who are working with peonies.
