Paeonia Lactiflora 'Festiva Maxima' (Paeony / Peony)

Paeonia Lactiflora 'Festiva Maxima' (Paeony / Peony)

Glorious large double white flowers

Exquisite, double flowers, that open with a pink blush, but quickly fade to creamy-white (while sometimes keeping a smattering of crimson flecks), appear from early to midsummer above the mid green leaves. One of the most popular old varieties, the enormous rose scented flowers are often more than 20cm across. Plant it close to a pathway or entrance, where the fabulous scent can be really appreciated.
