Early blooming, American herbaceous hybrid peony, 4/5 eye size. Hybridized by Prof. Saunders in 1950. Warm pink, elegantly formed, cup-shaped single with striking center of golden stamens. Very early to bloom in our garden, opens with the tree peonies in mid-May.
Good stem strength, flowers are about 5 inches in diameter. This is one of the plants from the test garden which always attracts attention. Erect stems with glossy green foliage, this is an excellent plant that requires no staking. The rain does not bother it; it stands up to the weather. Foliage changes to burgundy in the fall, before the frost.
