Peony Miss America
Paeonia lactiflora "Miss America". Mother of pearl tinted flower buds open up to bright white cup shaped flowers. Large semi-double flowers with numerous petals form a perfect cup, and contrast beautifully against the glossy dark green foliage.
Slightly fragrant flowers are placed upon long slender stems. Depending on the location support may be required. A strong performer, loved by bees and other pollen loving garden friends.
