Semi-double on young plants, otherwise full double flower. The large size flower head shows in an attractive shade of medium pink. The flower form is the classic two stage (flower-in-flower) anatomy of traditional Lactiflora Group cultivars. The inner flower varies in fullness, leading to our designation of semi-double flower form. There is a thin ring of pollen-bearing stamens at inner edge of the outer part and again at the center. The vigorous plants are sturdy, especially prolific and increasing foliage quality for most of the growing season. Strong, self-supporting stems, make a compact, medium height bush. It has a notably favorable combination of attributes and makes for an excellent landscape peony that also yields fine stems for the vase.
