Osti (1999)

HUO Lian JIN DA, «Pietra filosofale». Fiore doppio a forma di rosa di un rosso molto intenso e lucente, scuro all'unghia. Gli stami numerosi e giallo oro rappresentano l'oro in cui la pietra filosofale, ricercata da sempre dagli alchimisti taoisti, trasforma ciò con cui viene in contatto. È una delle prime peonie a fiorire e le foglie sono di un verde giallastro.

Osti (1997)

HUO LIAN JIN DA "Philosopher's Stone" Flowers: very bright glossy red, darker at the base of the petals; double, rose form, one of the earliest flowering, numerous golden yellow stamens (the gold representing the gold of the philosopher's stone; this stone was eagerly sought by Taoist alchemists as it was believed to ruin everything it touched into gold). Leaves: yellowish green.
