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.  Approximately 36″ in height.  Roots become very large after a short time and division is often difficult due to unusual crown configurations.  Old Faithful is a slow increaser, but worth growing.  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.
