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

Double type; large; midseason. Vivid rose-pink, brightening to
shell-pink in the center, all petals slightly lighter at the edges; mildly fragrant. Medium height; floriferous; strong stems. Good foliage.
Close to the Walter Faxon color group in that it has no trace of the mauve and old-rose shades which are characteristic of many pink varieties. It is one of the cleanest and brightest colored peonies grown.
