Purchased as Kelway's Glorious, Kelway, 1909
Now is this the real thing? To be honest, I’m not sure. It was purchased from the UK with this name but published descriptions seem be quite varied. Usually if I am not sure about a name I won’t offer it for sale but this is such an exquisite peony I have included it.
Flower form is between an anemone and a double.
Very good clean fragrance. The lower than average height makes it very useful.
Height: <60 cm
Staking Required: No
Bloom Week: 5

A Note on Observations
Observations of height, side buds, and staking are 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.
