BARONESS SCHROEDER. (Kelway, 1889.) 9.0.

Double type; very large; late midseason. Pale flesh-white, tinted cream; outer petals frequently shaded with faint pink; fragrant. Tall; floriferous; strong stems. Excellent foliage.

This variety develops a large, funnel-shaped crown when fully open, and while classed as a white peony it is sometimes very pale pink. The habit of the plant and the lasting quality of the blooms make it good for both garden decoration and cut-flowers. Opens better in water than in the field.

BARONESS SCHROEDER (Kelway, 1889) Double - White - Late Midseason. Tall. Normal fragrance. A double white tinted flesh pink. This pink will disappear as flower opens, leaving it a pure white. Strong stems and one of the best cut flowers. Excellent foliage. Opens better in water than in the field. Very large. Floriferous. Catalogs. M.

BARONESS SCHROEDER (Kelway) This is indeed a most excellent white which shows a tint of pink when it first opens. It soon fades to a pure white. Its all around good qualities make it very desirable as a commercial cut flower. Pleasingly fragrant. Midseason.

'Baroness Schröder' (Kelway, Engeland, 1889) Bloemen wit, iets roze getint, wit verbloeiend, gevuld, middelvroeg tot laat; bladeren groen, iets bruinrood getint, gaaf , hoogte 90 cm; bloemstengels matig stevig; vertakking redelijk Deze cultivar is een geliefde snijpioen, omdat de bloemen op water goed tot ontwikkeling komen. Helaas is de plant enigszins gevoelig voor Botrytis. 'Baroness Schröder' ontwikkelt zich op zwaardere grond beter dan op lichtere veengrond.
