Kortmann (1998)

officinalis 'Rubra Plena' (vóór 1907) Bloemen intensief donkerrood, gevuld; bladeren lichtgroen, blaadjes soms iets ingesneden; hoogte 50 cm; bloemstengels matig stevig; vertakking redelijk tot goed. 'Rubra Plena' is typisch een pioen voor de min. Voor de snij is deze cultivar minder geschikt. De plant bloeit rijk en heeft een mooie intensief rode kleur. Helaas is ook deze boerenpioen ietwat Botrytis gevoelig.

Rivière (2000):

RUBRA PLENA (Double) "L'ivrogne". Quel vilain nom pour une si belle plante I C'est pourtant celui qu'on lui réservait autrefois Elle mérite beaucoup mieux. Sa fleur rouge vif très soutenu, son feuillage abondant et très foncé, sa vigueur, l'autorisent à prendre place parmi les meilleures. H. 0,6 m.
