Creamy pink bloom with delicate silver hints. Bloom builds in the center. Sturdy stems and good plant habit make it a surefire choice for the spring garden.

Not the name I would have chosen for this peony. There is nothing unruly or lawless about this peony. Granted the stems carry several large flowers and it does perhaps benefit from a bit of staking but in my opinion it is worth the effort. The flowers could almost be called lavender pink. the fragrance, albeit light, is decidedly fresh and very agreeable.
