(Calot 1856) One of the oldest peonies, and certainly the most famous double white peony.
A full bloom with incurving petals of pure white that are lemony green at the base. Free flowering and highly scented. One of the earlier flowering cultivars so an excellent choice for prolonging the flowering season.
This is a shorter variety growing to approx 85cm making it a great choice for a windy garden. A popular garden variety that will never fail to deliver.
