Single type; large; early. Pure white, saucer-like blooms with long petals rounded at the ends and a center of long yellow stamens and greenish carpels, white at base and tips. Medium height; very prolific; stems weak. Foliage large. One of the most popular white single peonies. It would be a better decorative plant if the stems were stronger. Conceded to be identical with LA FIANCÉE. This was formerly catalogued as Albiflora, The Bride, but Albiflora is used now to designate the species only.
