Old Faithful. Glasscock/Falk. 1964. Herbaceous hybrid. American Peony Society Award of Landscape Merit. American Peony Society Gold Medal-1997. Old Faithful is a late blooming red hybrid. Flowers are large and double. Stem strength is outstanding and hold the large flowers upright very well. Foliage is good deep green that is a perfect backdrop to the flowers.

Produces large roots that create big ugly divisions. Takes a couple of years to make a nice looking clump. A fourth generation Glasscock hybrid. Week 5 bloom time. Unknown parentage. Fertile both ways. Premium divisions ship late September to mid October.
