Peony Fragrans

€34.00 Tax included

Paeonia lactiflora "Fragrans". As for heritage varieties this one certainly strikes a chord. Registered and introduced by Sir Joseph Banks P. "Fragrans" certainly has a history. 

Sir Joseph Banks known for his numerous introductions of plants became horticultural and garden adviser to Kew in 1771, a post which he held until his death in 1820. Next year this bi-centennial will be commemorated. So, the reintroduction of P. "Fragrans" in Europe is a must do.

Of course, P. "Fragrans" survived all this time because it is a healthy and strong grower. Disease resistant and sturdy. Flowers are double cone shaped and medium sized. It not only has a quintessential old-fashioned color but also a lovely scent. Flowers keep well in a vase and in your garden. A must have for everybody with a heart for history and easy plants. 

Registered in 1805.
