Large, semi-double to double flowers measure up to six inches across, held on strong stems above a compact mound of dark green foliage. As the flower matures, the dark lavender pink petals slowly fade to a soft pink, revealing a cluster of yellow stamens in its center. The flower is lightly fragrant. Prefers full sun to dappled shade. Hybridized by Don Smith, a leading Itoh Peony breeder.
