Peony Dr. F. G. Brethour
Paeonia lactiflora "Dr. F. G. Brethour".
The large rose shaped flowers are white with a champagne coloured centre. The scented flowers are carried on strong stems dressed in dark green healthy foliage. Several side buds prolong the flowering season of this late flowering variety, making it an ideal addition to prolong the peony bloom season in your garden. This strong plant does require some staking, but this is definitely worth the effort.
Dr. F. G. Brethour is one of our new cut flower varieties and for all those who have admired Dr. F. G. Brethour in our fields, patience at last pays off and this sumptuous beauty is finally available.
