Double type; large; late. A compact, almost bomb-like flower of many irregularly disposed petals; pale cream-white with a tan suffusion in the depths, toning to flesh-pink in the center; mild, pleasant fragrance. Medium height; floriferous; bending stems. Rather small foliage. A handsome, very richly colored flower which requires time to develop to its best form. Needs support if used for decoration in the garden. “The color might better be described as a pale apple-blossom-pink. At its best TOURANGELLE is one of the most beautiful of all peonies.”—Saunders. “Not a very strong grower. Stems inclined to be weak.”—Boyd. “There is probably no peony with greater refinement and delicacy.”—Engle.
