Historical Significance:

1928-B:35 Double. 9.1 Director’s Vote. Pink.

1928-B-d:102 Double type. Blooms are deep and flat, dark flesh-pink shading darker at base of petals, with a salmon glow. Strong and upright. Information taken from introducer's description. Received an Award of Merit at London (Ontario) International Peony Show, 1922.

1933-Sup:05 Double. 9.04 (Sym. 1933).

1935-B060:08 9.04. Lacti. Double. Late. Blush. Having won the distinction of being the best flower in the show for two successive years, this peony has come very much into the limelight. It is a tall grower with good stems bearing a perfect type of exhibition flower with much of the beautiful coloring of Solange. Under unfavorable weather conditions it does not open well always, though it is not nearly so bad an offender in that line as many of the great late whites. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful flowers of recent introduction and for that reason should find a place in all good collections in spite of its one fault.

1962-W:077 Double. Deep built, full pink blooms which become white. Infolded petals shade inwards and give forth pale salmon glow. Strong, average-height, upright bush is dependable producer of abundant flowers near the season's finish.
