Peony Lady Alexandra Duff

An heirloom variety first introduced in 1902, Lady Alexandra Duff was named for the daughter of Princess Louise of Wales and the Duke of Fife (family name of Duff), born in 1891. Lady D. bears flowers in clusters, with the side blooms typically smaller and saucer shaped. Pale blush pink, to decidedly pink in wet seasons, this peony is lightly fragrant, very floriferous and develops strong stems. Wonderful for arrangements. Vigorous and deer resistant. Limited availability this season.
