Paeonia lactiflora ( Alpine Air Peony )

Leaves are dark green, each with 9 lance-shaped, rough margined leaflets. A sport of ‘Festiva Maxima’ with double white flowers at top of red mottled stems. Support with wire frame or wooden stakes to keep weighty flowers from toppling plant. It is very important for plants to be grown in deep, humus-rich soil that is moist, but well drained. Prefers sun in cooler climates and part shade in warmer climates with protection from wind. Peonies are long-lived and resent relocation, so pick your spot and prepare your hole well!
