(Glasscock 1944) Gigantic double bomb piled high with a mass of red petals framed with a fan of wide red guard petals; old rose fragrance with a hint of cloves; the many blooms a mature plant show off deep, dark glossy pure red, then as the blooms past peak, a slightly purple cast comes on; probably the most popular peony.  Hefty roots in large pots.

Available also in pots at the nursery.
