The scoop on Peony Festiva Maxima

Festiva Maxima is an heirloom peony that's been popular for more than 150 years. Think about that - this plant was sprouting in gardens the year that most of San Francisco burned to the ground in the great fire, which was the same year that the sewing machine was patented. A long time. Festiva Maxima is still delighting homeowners with armfuls of double fragrant white blossoms, ribboned with streaks of deep red. This peony delivers attractive deep green foliage, strong stems (staking is recommended due to flower size/weight), great bouquet material and terrific fragrance.
