Single type; medium size; midseason. Horizontal white petals widest at tips, flushed a little with pink, surrounding a small center of short golden yellow stamens and green carpels with waxy, pink tips; fragrance poor. “Rated on only 3 votes. Flushed with pink on first opening. Medium tall, floriferous, spreading habit. Not as good as THE BRIDE. Interesting because it is said to be the parent of most of the Pleas peonies.”—Little.
