(Calot 1867). An ancient cultivar dating back to 1867 but still one of the most endearing garden peonies. Double apple blossom pink blooms with a heady sweet scent. Mid season flowering. The great attribute of this little gem is its diminuitive stature, ordinarily growing to just 60cm approximately.
