This peony is deer-resistant, easy to grow, and provides a 3-4 week period of blooms. When done flowering, the lush, green foliage can serve as a backdrop for other perennials, hardy roses or annuals.

Peonies look good in a row along a fence line to serve as a flowering border, and they make good cut flowers. Easy to grow and care for once established, they will grow for generations and become treasured inherited members of a garden.

NOMENCLATURE: 'Paeonia' (Named in honor of Paeon, Physician of the Gods in Greek mythology) and 'lactiflora' (milk-like flowers, possibly referring to the ant-attracting nectar produced by peonies, or to the milky-white flower of the unselected species).
