Registration description:
Official registration can be found at: The American Peony Society

A mutation of P. Major Steve, Seedling No. 3003. The peony Major Steve came from a cross of 1, own translation:<br /> 'Red Charm' (Glasscock, USA, 1944) (P. lactiflora x P. officinalis) Flowers dark red, very large, double, centre filled with many deep red petaloids, surrounded by two circles of large petals; leaves rather large, dull green; upperside somewhat irregular; height 100 cm; stems rather sturdy; number of stems mediocre. This American cultivar is remarkable thanks to its magnificent colour and the enormously large flowers, which need support to remain upright, despite the plant having sturdy stems. The mediocre number of stems and the development of so called 'necks' on the roots inhibited propagation and distribution at large scale for some time. 'Red Charm' is reportedly somewhat susceptible toward botrytis, which was also noted by the review commission. It is a good garden plant, despite some negative characteristics.</p> <p> </p> </div>" href="https://www.peonysociety.eu/registered_peonies/red-charm/">Red Charm x Sunny boy. The mutation, Fulfilled dream is a large pale pink with two rows of guard petals forming a cup of full center small anemone petals slightly
