Carnation Bouquet

This very elegant peony owes her beautiful name to the shape of her flowers. Very neatly organized flower petals create a strong resemblance with the flowers of carnations. The combination with her graceful foliage results into a true peony wonder. Lovingly, we call this peony 'Plastic Fantastic' here, because of her spectacular shiny and glossy leaves. Depending on personal taste, 'Carnation Bouquet' can use some mechanical support at adverse weather conditions. She is a highly floriferous variety. Buds are somewhat unusual, displaying very fine twists (also comparable to carnations!). Lovely fragrance, and blooming time is very early for a pink full double peony. Her flower colour is not just pink - the silver and bright glow also make the colour of this fantastic peony very special.
