Single; the large flower opens brilliant scarlet red, the color contrasted by the prominent yellow center. Well-formed, big petals of excellent substance. Our favorite of the Saunders Lobata of Perry reds. Substantial bush of medium height, leaf-clothed from top to bottom. Healthy foliage, the most durable foliage of the group. This peony makes a striking addition to the perennial border.
