Peony The Mackinac Grand

€29.00 Tax included

Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "The Mackinac Grand".

A peony noticed, photographed and referred to by many visitors during the numerous years it was in production in our fields. Finally, we have decided to market it. Like a warm red beacon it shines among all the other varieties in our field. The flowers are softly scented.  Several rows of velvety red wavy petals create an endless play of light and shadow. 

Her name may have been a reference to Mackinac Island, between Lake Huron and Lake Michigan USA, once upon a time a safe crossing to the Wild Wild West. Or was it named after a mysterious Indian tribe, that was sometimes heard shooting while roaming the woods but was never seen. Or as mysterious horseman do, riding like an Indian dogs following. 

What is certain is that this majestic plant with sturdy stems and healthy foliage does not need any support. A very successful crossing of David Reath and deserved winner of the Gold Medal and Award of Landscape Merit of the American Peony Society.
