This is the peony that inspired me to become serious about peonies! It is a true butter yellow, not as yellow as a buttercup and not light enough to be mistaken for cream. With the addition of its amazing fragrance, and bright pink stamens on strong stems, these blooms are breathtaking. The older Lemon Chiffon gets, the more double the flowers become. This is the kind of specimen that makes strangers stop to admire your garden. Absolutely phenomenal.
