[Pherson 1978] Herbaceous Hybrid: Delightful semi-dwarf peony with double, bomb-shaped flowers in a deep cerise red that lightens as the blooms age, while retaining its dark coloration in the heart of the flower. Great substance and reliable bloom. An outstanding cut flower, the compact shrubs have excellent stem strength, making them a great choice for the landscape, too! A favorite. Blooms midseason.
