(Bigger 1952) One of the most unusual and dazzling Imperials (aka Japanese); the blooms are crisp white with a center mass of spiky white staminodes; smaller petals or petaloids may emerge from the center; an extraordinary peony but may get off to a slow start when the weather is cool, which is often in the PNW; may require a few years to bloom well.

Available in pots at the nursery.
