Excellent foliage. A particularly symmetrical flower for its size, with unusual qualities of substance and texture. Especially valuable for show purposes and is also effective in the garden. "Rather uncertain with me, but at its best one of the most beautiful of all peonies."—Saunders. "I like the French expression of 'accidental carmine,' which may be applied to this flower. Some flowers have no splashes."—Thurlow.
