Double type; large; midseason. Vivid rose-pink, brightening to shell-pink in the center, all petals slightly lighter at the edges; mildly fragrant. Medium height; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage. Close to the WALTER FAXON color group in that it has no trace of the mauve and old-rose shades which are characteristic of many pink varieties. It is one of the cleanest and brightest colored peonies grown. “Possessing a shade desirable in peonies.”—Christman. “A real treasure. Its effect in the garden is nothing short of gorgeous.”— Mrs. Edward Harding. “One of the most attractive peonies I have ever seen.”—Boyd.
