Semi-double; large. Three to four rows of large, light pink guard petals surround a band of smaller inner petals, which grade smaller inward to a remnant of stamens and centered by a pair of red tipped carpels. The color is most saturated in the depths of the flower and lightens outward to tips of the rounded guard petals. One flower per stem is presented a few inches above the strong bush on sturdy, erect stems of medium height and clothed in yellow green foliage. Leaflets remain green well into summer, being somewhat resistant to leaf spot fungi and quite resistant to peony mildew. The plant is a strong grower in our Midwest climate.
