Paeonia lactiflora 'Green Lotus'

Image Credit: Joy O'Connor.

Stop Press! This newcomer is a truly stunning and very scarce ornamental variety with large, raggedy, highly-scented blossoms. What more could your heart desire? Its flowers are multi-tonal and incredibly unique. Irregularly flecked with 
white, pink and green its full of character and associates well with gentle pastel-toned perennials. Its will thrive in semi-shaded locations which offer deep fertile soil. We think its so striking, it deservedly warrants prime position at the front of a border, where one can enjoy its slowly unfurling goblet-shaped blossoms. Flowers with vigour through May and June.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
