A classic! Festiva Maxima was the very first peony I ever bought and it started a life long love affair (which my husband would call an obsession) with the species. Festiva is big and bold and fluffy; sometimes with akiss of crimson red, sometimes a slight pink hue and always beautiful. This award winner comes early and is the very best double peony for warmer southern climates where peonies sometimes struggle. And you can’t beat the price!
