D. E. Fire red. Parentage not known. Size: Medium flower. Broad guard petals, center of smaller petals, form globular, all of uniform brilliant, fire-red, making it a spectacular sight in the garden and a much desired color for cut-flowers for which use it is admirably suited as it can be cut with stems longer than most other varieties when desired. The flowers stand up high on strong stems above medium height (30 to 36 inches). It is a sure and reliable bloomer for the Decoration Day trade in the southern part of the peony belt from Indianapolis south. Its foliage is ample medium green. Seedling # 66.
