Laura Dessert is a magnificent example of what is called a Bomb Peony. That's the name given to the ones with large flat back-petals and an explosion of double petals in the center. Laura's fluffy center seems to sit on the base petals like lemon sherbet on a plate.
Grows to 90cm , 3 ft.
Growing Peonies: If you live where peonies grow, its the same every year in late spring. Certain homes have them in beds, borders, along drives--and anywhere they grow, they create probably the most beautiful clump of flowering of the whole season. Big, usually fluffy flowers in glossy green foliage.
Perennial peonies are what experienced gardeners call investment plants. They're some of the most permanent landscaping you can buy. In fact, many continue blooming beautifully for over 100 years. Once they're established, they're as hardy and dependable as oaks, creating a fantastic season of bloom in your garden year after year.
