Frilly peony form. Flowers are shell pink with very light pink petaloids near center. Ackerman lists it as one of the following selections for early to late winter blooms due to its mixed parentage. Ashton's pink is darker pink. The white ones are Ashton's snow, Fairweather Favorite, and Winter's Moonlight. I'm leaning toward getting this one because I can handle it's larger size, and it is especially cold hardy with very hardy flower buds, according to Ackerman.
