Each year, from late spring and into early summer, this Peony 'Festiva Maxima' just takes your breath away. It has really stood the test of time, too: it was first grown more than 150 years ago! Its large blooms, 12-17cm across, are delightfully fragrant. They are pure white and double – packed with frilly petals that are occasionally flecked with crimson; every bloom is unique, as the flecking will be more prominent on some than others. Dark green leaves showcase the blooms to perfection!

Strong, upright stems make Peony 'Festiva Maxima' excellent as a cut flower. It grows to a height of around 95cm, with a spread of 90cm. Paeonia lactiflora 'Festiva Maxima' is very free-flowering, very impressive, very reliable, and an all-time favourite Peony. It is considered such a good plant that the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has awarded it a coveted Award of Garden Merit.

Your XXL roots are guaranteed to have 10 or more eyes, or buds, which is phenomenal. These will ensure that the plant will grow into a beautiful perennial. Any fertile, free-draining soil will do, in full sun or part shade. A sheltered position provides best results.
