‘The Fawn’ Garden PeonyPaeonia lactiflora 32" tall. Introduced sometime between 1922 and 1943.
Possibly the most posh peony you will ever set eyes on. Fragrant fully double blossoms feature translucent silky blush-pink petals covered with subtle deeper pink speckles. The overall effect is breathtaking. Sturdy stems not as floppy as most peonies.
Red shoots appear in spring and form a bushy clump, about 3x3', of lustrous dark green deeply lobed foliage. Fat spherical buds on sturdy stems above the foliage gradually open into large beautiful flowers from late spring to early summer. May take 3-5 years to establish before blooming and resents being disturbed or left in a pot for more than one winter. Wait several years until the plants have many steps (therefore many eyes) before dividing.
Late season blooms. Opens just before Sarah Bernhardt and keeps longer in a vase. Z3. (bare-root crowns with 3-5 eyes)
