• P. Cytherea

Peony Cytherea

€14.00 Tax included

Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Cytherea". The intense hot pink colour of the flowers fades gradually to soft peach and ivory. 

They open one by one and adorn the plant with all the different shades. The large flowers are set as perfect semicircles above the compact solid green foliage and they require no support. Graced with a soft fragrance, this peony is ideal as a garden plant and for a vase.

Cytherea is better known under the name of Aphrodite and her Roman counterpart Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Myrtles, doves, sparrows, horses and swans were reportedly sacred to her.
