* Swoon *
Meet Paeonia ‘Garden Treasure’ with its companion, Alchemilla mollis (Lady’s mantle). This peony is an ‘Itoh’ variety, also called ‘intersectional’, meaning it is a cross between a herbaceous peony and a Japanese tree peony. It is also a American Peony Society Gold Medal Winner.
I purchased this peony from La Pivoinerie d’Aoust about three years ago and it cost me ….. shhhh…. $150.0o! If you’d like to order from this company, you’ll have to wait until the fall of 2013 when they will have a new catalogue and will resume shipping.
In the meantime, you’ll have to see if Suzanne Patry can get one for you at her nursery, Whitehouse Perennials. If no, then there is no shortage of other glorious peonies to choose from!
