(Crousse 1888) Always one of the most popular garden peonies. Light lavender pink fragrant flowers with large outer petals and a raised centre that varies in colour and shape as the bloom develops. Distinct broad green foliage which is a particularly bright shade of green. This is one of the last peonies to flower, so it is very useful in extending the peony season. A shorter variety growing to approx 80cm.
