White Innocence

The tallest herbaceous peony around! Not only in our catalogue, but among all herbaceous peony varieties and species in the world not one matches the height 'White Innocence' can reach. Each very sturdy and enchantingly waving stem forms many single pristine white flowers with a very special and appealing green center - these flowers are truly unique within the variation of the peony kingdom. This variety is a fantastic asset for every garden. A garden plant with extreme ornamental value, tremendously floriferous and vigorous growth. In 1960 the daughter of the breeder (Sylvia Saunders) even reports of 219 flowers on one single plant!
