Peonies, The Manual of the American Peony Society, edited by James Boyd © 1928 American Peony Society: [Descriptive List of Chinese Peonies]:

KATHARINE HAVEMEYER. (Thurlow, 1921.) 9.0.

Double type; large; midseason. Light rose-pink with a tinge of old-rose; as it develops the outer petals droop sharply and the inner ones incurve about a perfect rose-bud center; mild rose fragrance. Average height; floriferous; excellent stems. Good foliage.

A good sort for general planting as the flowers have high quality and are sturdy enough to last well in the garden. Awarded Certificate of Honorable Mention at London (Ontario), June 16, 1922.

"A flower of refined form and texture, in a class with President Wilson and Edwin C.Shaw. Midseason to late. Tall. Fragrance usually strong."—Thurlow.
