Peony Lois' Choice

Peony Lois' Choice


Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Lois' Choice".

An exceptional beauty, which has little comparison. The buds open up in a most peculiar way, showing off what is yet to come. Gently they unfold in a globe of closely-knit ruffled petals resting on a base of the same hue. The flower is built up in tiers, with a soft yellow under tone and different layers of pink creating an eclectic peachy pastel mix. Every flower is different.

This early flowering beauty has strong stems which are clad in broad-leaved olive-green foliage. A cross obtained by Chris Laning of rare delicacy and named Lois’ Choice by his wife. It is definitely a winner and already won the American Peony Society Gold Medal.  

Registered in 1993.
