Paeonia 'Bridal Veil'

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

Bridal Veil (Kelway), indescribable light pink with creamy white and pink centre. Double, Perfect shape and very fine.ml.

Large blooms of an unusual shade of light lilac pink with a raised central crown of white petals, tipped with the same lilac pink. An intensely scented peony and a great favourite.. Mid to late flowering.

Bridal Veil - an old variety released by Kelways, in England. This is one of my father's old plants which I rescued after he moved house - nearly 20 years ago. I did not know its name, and I had assumed it to be an old French variety. It is more delicate in colouring than many of the well known Lactifloras. I like it for its appearance, and for its sentimental value - to me. It is probably the first Peony I ever owned.

I have been searching for a name for this variety for years, and now believe that I have found it, courtesy of Carsten Burkhardt's amazing Peony Database. Thanks, Carsten.
