Hollingsworth's note in the Saunders' notebook:

Queen Rose: „Peyton 1953 APS Bull. 129 says 'Queen Rose' was formerly 'Masterpiece, but QR is attributed by S.S. to 2634 X L.P. #S 10053-10067“

QUEEN ROSE (Saunders, 1949) Formerly MASTERPIECE. Semi-Double - Rose Pink - Hybrid. Semi-double to double. Albiflora x lobata. List in Bulletin 129.

Queen Rose (1949) A heavenly single, with furled petals deeper at the heart, paler towards the outer edges. This is one of the finest of the whole race. [ . [Albiflora x lobata - the great race of „lobata hybrids“ This group contains many beautiful pink and red tones so long desired in the Chinese peonies; salmon, coral, rose and deep cherry pinks, to clear bright crimsons, with no hint of purple and never a bad color in all the hundreds that have bloomed. I think this is the most brilliant and e effective strain of herbaceous hybrids yet produced. . Their season is generally M. They set hardly any seed, but their F2's may be interesting. About a dozen reds, and almost thirty pinks have been introduced, many of them so similar to one another that I have now tried to sort them roughly into color groups. The pinks especially, fade off as the flower ages , into pale peach shades, so that a mature plant will have flowers of many differing tones, but all harmonious [..] are single except when otherwise noted. Shades of rose

QUEEN ROSE You could almost be forgiven for thinking that somehow a tulip was growing on top of peony foliage. The flower is elongated like a tulip, and is of a wonderful shade of rose pink. Compact plant. Pink single, Mid season 80cm.
