Paeonia lactiflora “Do Tell”. This lovely scented peony is elegant by appearance and ideal for the front of a border. The soft pink petals surround an intricate mix of dark pink and white petaloids. The appearance of the flower can vary in date and time, is however always very pleasing. The flowers are displayed to their advantage over the dark green shiny foliage.
Do Tell is medium in size, the stems are strong and there is no need for an artificial support, it is definitely worth talking about.
