Bought a gallon pot of this from a nursery two years ago and it bloomed this year for the first time - a beautiful, vivid pink that was well worth the wait. The nursery tag had this labeled with the full name: Mme. Emile Debatene.

Often seen with different spellings, including Mme. Emile Debatine on the Heartland Peony Society site, blooming on day 10 relative to Red Charm. The Peony Project using the above spelling identifies stiff stems, and ruffled salmon-pink blossoms.
