Peony Nancy Nora

Peony 'Nancy Nora'


Paeonia lactiflora 'Nancy Nora'. If perfection is your thing, this perfectly formed, double, soft pink flower deserves a place in your garden. The stems are sturdy and well covered with dark green foliage. The flowers have a long vase life and one flower is enough to perfume a room. A successful cross between 'Walter Faxon' and 'Lady Alexandra Duff', both noted for their soft fragrance, 'Nancy Nora' has a captivating scent. Described in the literature as a rose geranium, to me it has the scent of sweets and, like sweets, I cannot get enough of it. A favourite with visitors to our fields. 

Registered with the 'American Peony Society' in 1942.
