Deep orange-coral buds open to pleasing coral-peach flowers, passing pale creamy beige. Numerous strongly cupped petals grade smaller inward, surrounding a cluster of light yellow stamens. Tall stems are reachy, leaning with the open flower, consider adding mechanical support when to be flowered in the landscape. Perhaps no peony is more in demand for floral decoration.
