Double, medium size flower opens blush, particularly in cool spring weather. The color soon fades to pure white as it matures. Layers of petals grade successively smaller and narrower toward center, typically obscuring a cluster of pollen baring stamens. These yellow stamens are visible on flowers of young plants and those of the side buds. Altogether, an attractive flower that is of good substance and form. The plant is quite vigorous and of good plant habit, a dependable bloomer with ample color on a compact bush. Stout stems are of medium height and typically self-supporting, needing only light support against inclement conditions. The bush is well-clad in attractive deep green foliage, which remains healthy for most of the growing season. A fine, late flowering peony that does well in the front of the flower border.
