Peony 'Benjamin Franklin' bears a faint fragrance. Medium size. Dark crimson, outer petals large and the center composed of smaller overlapping petals mixed with many stamens. 'Benjamin Franklin' peony is vigorous and free-flowering; blooms held high above the compact foliage on wiry stems. A good red peony with undeniable value for landscaping effect.
