Peony 'Show Girl'


Paeonia herbaceous hybrid 'Show Girl'. Deep pink petals surround a domed cream heart. A warm colour combination that deserves the attention of any visitor. On a mature plant, the flowers will show a few extra pink petals in the centre for that extra bit of glamour. Gently fragrant. Several side buds prolong the flowering period. A healthy plant with strong stems, well covered in dark green foliage. Towards summer the flowers turn into beautiful seed pods which can be left on a mature plant.

A very successful cross between P. 'Dawn Pink' and P. 'Echo'.  

Registered in 1984.
