Peony Florence Nicholls

Peony Florence Nicholls


Paeonia lactiflora "Florence Nicholls".

Very large double rose-shaped flower. Petals have a mother of pearl shade at the opening stage and gently change to white. The lovely scent is inherited from P. "Mme. Calot" one of the parent plants. Strong upright stems, with some side buds, which extend the flowering season. Flowers do require some support, however the view of a plant in full bloom is more than worth the effort.

Registered in 1938
