DIA JO DUHAN (Millet) - Jap. - Pink (Incorrect spelling of DAI-JO-KUHAN). This variety produces blooms in clusters of 4 to 6 blooms per cluster. It is a deep pink with small, short stamens. Letter from Mr. Peyton.

Flower Form: Semi-double

Staking: No

Height:60-90 cm

Bloom Period: Week 5

Fragrance Good

Side Buds: Several per stem

Comments: Numerous small deep pink single flowers appear on a stout bushy plant. Each stem can have as many a six flowers to a stem, making each stem a small bouquet in itself. This is an excellent peony to plant in an area where a large splash of colour is required to be seen from a distance.
