DR. JOHN L. CRENSHAW Late. Bright crimson red, medium height plants, stems long and erect.

(D R L) For reasons we don't understand, almost all of the red peonies bloom early and whites appear late in the season. This wonderful flower is an exception to this rule. Dr. Crenshaw comes into bloom with the late whites. A bright scarlet red. Not offered for sale in many years.
