Single, ivory white to rosy petals with prominent dark sweet pink flares at the base of the petals. A fantastic whole. ‘Athena’ is a so called “Saunders Quad-hybrid” the special result of crossing four different species peonies from this ground-breaking breeder. The foliage will benefit from some afternoon shade. A fairly upright plant habit completes the elegance of this masterpiece in the group of early herbaceous hybrid peonies.
