Peony Show Girl

Description

Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Show Girl".

Intense pink petals surround a dome shaped cream coloured heart. A warm colour combination, deserving every visitor's attention.

On a mature plant, the flowers display a few extra pink petals in the centre, giving this extra bit of glamour. Softly fragrant. Several side buds extend the flowering period. A healthy plant with stout stems, well clad in dark green foliage. Towards summer the flowers change into beautiful seedpods, which may be left on a mature plant. A very successful cross between P. "Dawn Pink" and P. "Echo".  

Registered in 1984.
