Parentage, Colchicine treated Dayton x Colchicine treated Mons Jules Elie. Red-violet double lactiflora, ball form, good substance, stamens, pollen, seeds, reliable. Height 42 inches, strong stems, holds up well after twelve days of rain. Very vigorous, medium green foliage. This delicately fragrant large 6-7 inch bloom reminds me of my grandmother, Zoe Ion VanHouten. Her rosy cheeks are reminiscent in the red violet blooms. I learned how to pollinate peonies from her. It is in memory of this noble lady that I name my best lactiflora Zoe Ion VanHouten. Photo on file. Seedling # ZL 456
