    "Paeonia 'Top Brass', (3-DB-WH) lactiflora cultivar Peony, (C. G. Klehm, 1968), USDA Hardiness Zone 4, Medium height, double bomb, white guard petals, yellow staminodes, light pink petaloids (center), slight fragrance, good cut, midseason bloomer, Michigan Bloom Month 5.

    Cross of Charley's White x Own seedling. In some photos, it looks more like an anemone type flower. However, in other photos, it looks like a full double bomb. Green foliage divided into oval to lance-shaped segments."
