From The Manual of the American Peony Society (1928)
Edited by James Boyd


Double type; large; late. A flower of heavy substance, with large, incurved outer petals, surrounding a compact, globular center; light shell-pink with an old-rose tint in the center and fades lighter quickly; some center petals edged maroon; clean, fresh fragrance. Strong stems.
The originator describes it as silvery pink flushed carmine. The above description was made from direct observation. Some growers consider it too small, and object to its heavy stems and scant foliage.
