Peony Moon River

Peony Moon River


Paeonia lactiflora "Moon River".

First the song.... "Moon River"

by Audrey Hepburn born in Belgium ;)

Moon River, wider than a mile,

I'm crossing you in style some day. 

Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker, 

wherever you're going I'm going your way. 

Two drifters off to see the world. 

There's such a lot of world to see. 

We're after the same rainbow's end

waiting 'round the bend, 

my huckleberry friend, 

Moon River and me.

Music by Henry Mancini, lyrics by Johnny Mercer

1961 Paramount Music Corporation, ASCAP

The flower: This peony is double softly scented with a luminous pink blush. Stems are strong and medium heigh, the peony does not require a support. Without doubt an adorable peony for the garden and vase.
