Paeonia 'Ball O'Cotton'

type: [herbaceous peony] – [species cultivar] – [lactiflora]

BALL O'COTTON (Franklin, 1920) - Double - White - Late Midseason. Medium height. Fragrance mild and sweet. Petals incurved, overlapping at first, forming a large, compact white ball; later, the enormous outer petals unfold, the evenly graduated inner petals form a rose-like center of crisp texture; a wire edge of crimson appears on a few petals and there is a faint lemon tint in the center when fully open; moderately floriferous; stems strong. Foliage good. Similar to but not as large as Le Cygne or quite so pure in color. Excellent habit for garden use. Midseason.
