(C.Klehm). Large blowsy blooms, everything a large double should be...and more, because its sweet fragrance will knock you out!. The blooms are a clear pale pink with large guard petals cupping a raised centre of fluffy petals. A row of pale yellow stamens form a middle ring towards the centre of the bloom. Mid season flowering, this peony is a shortie at around 70cm (28ins) and rarely needs staking.
