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 flowerbed. Stems are sturdy and well clad in dark green foliage.

The flowers have a long vaselife and one flower is sufficient to scent a room. 

A successful cross between “Walter Faxon” and “Lady Alexandra Duff”, both noted as softly fragrant however Nancy Nora’s fragrance is spell bounding. Described as rose geranium in the literature, for me it has the scent of candies and as with candies I cannot get enough of it. A favourite with the visitors of our fields. 

Registered with the American Peony Society in 1942.
