Hybrid– Paeonia lactiflora ‘Minnie Shaylor’ x P. peregrina ‘Otto Froebel’
A wanted peony. Typical Coral-hybrid with large semi-double flowers. A little more salmon-colored than 'Coral Charm' and starts flowering one or two days earlier. Like the others from the Coral-series very vigorous and tall growing. Little to no sidebuds. A fabulous variety.

Wissing / Klehm (USA), 1981
Hybride – Paeonia lactiflora ‘Minnie Shaylor’ x P. peregrina ‘Otto Froebel’
Een gezochte pioenroos. Typische koraalhybride met grote half gevulde bloemen. Iets zalmkleuriger dan Coral Charm en één à twee dagen eerder in bloei. Net als de andere Corals zeer groeikrachtig en vrij hoog. Zijknoppen komen sporadisch voor. Een fantastische cultivar.
