Paeonia 'Mother's Day'

type: [herbaceous peony] – [species cultivar] – [lactiflora]

MOTHER'S DAY (Kelsey, 1936) - Double - White - Midseason. Tall. Clear white. This is an exceptionally fine peony and one of the best we have seen. A gem of the first water. It is impossible to view this peony without being greatly impressed with its beauty and stateliness. We consider this a glorified Elsa Sass, if such a comparison is possible. The long wiry stems and the clear white charmingly shaped blooms that come in profusion every year make this an ideal cut-flower: Wild's 1949 catalog. List in Bulletins 91 and 109.
