Peony Laura Dessert
Paeonia lactiflora "Laura Dessert".
The anemone-form guard petals are pink in bud, open to cream and pale lemon, and become white at their final stage. They enclose a fluffy cream-colored centre of petaloids. Lovely scented flower. Several side buds extend the flowering period. The dark green foliage remains clean until the end of summer and the peony is a suitable landscape- as well as cut flower variety.
