Double type; small; early. Very dark crimson with a blackish sheen, fully double with a symmetrically incurved center; richly rose-scented. Medium height; floriferous; wiry stems. Good foliage.

Its great fault is lack of size. It is especially decorative in the garden. See color illustration.

"The only really sweet-scented red peony that I know of."—Boyd.
