Paeonia 'Cora Louise' (Anderson, 1984) is an intersectional (Itoh) hybrid peony: White, deep lavender flares, semi-double, lightly fragrant, midseason bloomer, 24" tall, dark green foliage. Named after Anderson's grandmother. Roger F. Anderson (Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin) began hybridizing peonies in the early 1970s. He is best known for his Itoh hybrids.
