White Lotus Tree Peony, #010
Notable characteristics: This peony is the result of a cross between the Chinese tree peony Paeonia rockii and a Japanese tree peony. The resulting cross is a very vigorous, unique, one-of-a-kind tree peony. Highly recommended, and easy to grow, this seed grown plant flowered well this spring. A white flower with a soft pink cast, it shows its peony rockii parentage by the complex interior markings.
