Evergreen shrub with an upright, pyramidal growth habit and lustrous, deep-green foliage. Peonylike, double blooms are a clear pink and appear in abundance beginning in early-winter. Best when planted in moist but well-draining, acid, humusy soil. This classic older variety is an enduring favorite whose flowers make beautiful corsages.
