Peony Lafayette Escadrille

Peony 'Lafayette Escadrille'


Paeonia Itoh 'Lafayette Escadrille'. A row of deep burgundy red slender petals encloses a limited amount of stamens and very prominent greenish pistils. 

New shoots with a red glow, subsequently grow into a mass of fresh green foliage. Flowers bloom just above the decorative leaves.

Like most red Itoh peonies the foliage can develop small brown spots in hot summers . This is genetic and cosmetic and has nothing to do with the health of the plant.

Registered by W. Seidl in 1988.
