First introduced in 1851, Festiva Maxima has been loved by generations of peony enthusiasts!
And no wonder - the large white double flowers with striking red streaks are only made prettier by Festiva Maxima’s sweet, heady fragrance.
Festiva Maxima flowers freely and makes an excellent cut flower.
The flowers are heavy so best to give Festiva Maxima some support in the landscape.
