If you are familiar with the old fashioned red cottage garden peony, then this is its sumptuous white form. The flowers open with an outer blush of pale pink but quickly change to white. Smaller and neater growing to around 60cm in height and spread. Early flowering during May so a welcome harbinger to the main peony season
