This fragrant, fully double, pure white flowered peony has long been considered a classic peony. Short in stature, the flowers open out showing off a centre of shorter, frilly petals that are just touched with lemon. The leaves are deep green.
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.
