Double type; large; midseason. Large outer petals of blush-white, shaded with pink, especially on the outside, cupped, waved and held horizontally; center petals narrower and incurved at first, opening to a true rose form with small petals deep in the heart; the whole bloom flesh-white, suffused with faint rose-pink, a few petals edged with crimson; rose-like fragrance. Medium height; upright growth; free-flowering. Excellent foliage. A peony of almost typical globular form, but developing the true rose-form characteristic as it opens. Scarcely distinct enough to be greatly desirable, but undoubtedly an excellent sort.
