Eugène Verdier

Calot, 1864




While it was purchased under this name, somewhere along the way, this peony has lost it's rightful name, which unfortunately happens often with old lactifloras. Normally, this nameless peony would not be listed, however it was a real stand out in the field. I have admired it for years, and made many gorgeous bouquets from it. If you are looking for a white/blush lactiflora with a strong parfum, and strong stems, you won't be dissapointed with peony. 


Height: > 90 cm

Fragrance: Excellent

Sidebuds: 1 to 2 per stem

Staking required: No

Bloom Week: 5

  • Our Guarantee

    Our promise is to provide you with healthily grown root divisions, with 3-5 eyes, and true to name. We take great care in packaging your roots so they arrive in perfect planting condition. If for any reason, during shipping, your package is not to your satisfaction, please send a photo within 48 hours, and we will either replace your order or refund you. 

    Since planting conditions, and other variables are outside of our control, we cannot guarentee roots once they have been planted. 

  • A Note on Observations

    Observations of height, side buds, and staking are the observations from Hudson, Quebec (zone 5a) grown in full sun, in a clay based soil. In different environments plants will perform slightly different. Instead of 1 to 2 side buds per stem, you may have none. If growing in slightly shadier environment, your peony may require staking. The observations are meant as a general guide, in how your peony should perform in optimal planting. In the case of fragrance, these are observations based on personal sniff tests in the field, we must bear in mind our olfactory senses are all different.
