A very pretty peony with a whimsical name to match, at first glace Fairy’s Petticoat may look like a familiar bomb double but a surprise awaits in the center of the fluffy flowers! A yellow circlet bands a flower consisting of soft pink, blushy guard petals that match the crown of ruffled pink central petals that mound high. Sounds familiar so far, right? Well, here’s the twist- central petals display and unfold in a very rose-like form, making for a very distinct and unusual combination! The fragrance of Fairy’s Petticoat is truly enchanting, further contributing to the ethos of the flower provided by the name. This plant has a stout and compact build with sturdy stems that carry the flowers well. Side buds, that number 1 – 3 per stem, greatly increase the flower power and extend the bloom period. Fairy’s Petticoat has all the stuff of an excellent cut flower like many peonies bred by the Klehm family, masters of the modern lactifloras. Charming!
