'LADY KATE' Peony (Paeonia x lactiflora 'lady kate')
A heritage selection, 'Lady Kate' was introduced back in the '20s...the 1920s! Eye-catching 7" blossoms sit atop 36" wiry, mottled-red stems. Each medium-pink blossom is flattened like an opened English rose rather than globe-shaped giving 'Lady Kate' a unique characteristic in the peony garden. Additionally, this selection begins her show at the tail-end of the peony season, making it stand out even more. Excellent cut-flower. May need support during peak bloom. 'Lady Kate' has become hard to find in the market. VERY LIMITED QUANTITY.
Bare roots available only in the fall/winter.
