Peony Festiva Maxima

Sometimes recent introductions - whether plants, hairdos or clothing styles - are improvements from previous options. Sometimes not. Festiva Maxima is a peony cultivar that would be hard to improve upon as it offers an abundance of very large, fully double blossoms with the classic, rich fragrance that has made peonies so popular for generations. The snowy blooms are decorated with kisses of deep crimson, along the petal edges and tucked into the heart of the flower. Excellent for mixed perennial beds and hard to beat for snipping and savoring indoors. An heirloom variety, grown since 1851.
