This peony is reported to be fragrant, perhaps due to its lactiflora parent. It is also one of the fuller flowers among the Saunders peonies, a form preferred by many gardeners.
My original plant obtained under the name ‘Blushing Princess’ is not correct so I ordered a second plant for fall 2021. The photo on the right shows the first flower in my garden on my new plant in 2022. Finally, I have the correct plant!
