Peony Butch

Peony Butch


Paeonia lactiflora "Butch". Strong stems, sturdy plant, resilient petals and blooms. The name Butch is a perfect match.  But like all tough guys it has a little soft spot. This one has a lovely scent, maybe the reason why you fall for this dude!

Flowers, deep violet with a silvery edge are carried well above the shiny fresh green foliage and sturdy stems. Several flower buds per stem extend the flowering season. The colour combines well with soft or deep pink tones, a lovely addition for your flower bed and it does not require any stalking.

Registered in 1959.
