    Paeonia 'Green Lotus' (Krekler, Roy Klehm, 1995) is a herbaceous species-cultivar or a cultivar with only one herbaceous species involved (in this case Paeonia lactiflora). Single blooms tending towards semi-double. Looks somewhat like a Cactus Dahlia. At any rate, an unusual mostly white flower with pink tips. A light lime base with some lime green streaking on the pedals. Pistils are white tipped and stamens are bright yellow. In my opinion, an unusual looking flower that quickly turns ugly. In other words, the window of opportunity for a good photo closes quickly. Leaves look good in fall.
