One of the easiest to grow 'specie' type peonies, and one of the most beautiful. The small, cupped, pure white flowers open above a mound of extremely lovely deeply divided leaves that forms a dense and upright clump.
Peonies will grow in most soils as long as they are not wet, including clay soils. They require a sunny or partially shaded site. Herbaceous peonies need to be planted with the eye (the dormant pink buds) no more than 2.5cm below the surface of the soil. Do not mix manure in the soil before planting as this may rot the eyes.
