Lactiflora, double, wine red. Seed parent, seedling 5908. Pollen parent, 6001. First bloomed 1969. Height 24″, midseason, very good stems, good substance, one to three buds per stem. No pollen, no fragrance. Good bloom, stamens, sets seeds, ball form, reliable. Increases good, medium green foliage. Plant second generation of original peony cross of Philippe Rivoire on Kansas. The seed parent and the pollen parent are the result of my initial cross. It does not resemble either of its grandparents, but would fit in somewhere between the two of them. My primary object in registering this peony plant is to make it available to peony breeders and hybridizers as breeding stock. Seedling # 6502.
