Peony 'Prairie Star'

Description

Paeonia lactiflora 'Prairie Star'. The medium sized flowers are composed of milky white outer petals enclosing a soft golden fluffy centre. Multiple side buds ensure a profusion of flowers and embellish this hardy, vigorous variety. This variety will grow into a broad bush and is not only a star of the prairie, but certainly deserves a place in any garden.
