Peony Shirley Temple

This classic peony flowers in a lovely blush pink that lightens to white as it ages, so the plant often showcases blooms in several delicate shades at once. Shirley Temple's blossoms are profuse, large, usually about 8" across, and very fragrant. Strong stems and excellent cut flower qualities add to the appeal. This variety may have grown in your grandmother's garden and should certainly grace yours. An early bloomer and deer resistant.
