GLORIOUS WHITE BOMB: Madame de Vernville is a time-tested classic; it has clouds of white which open to a beautiful blush, highlighted with sharp red hues scattered over its upper third. Madame de Vernville is wonderfully fragrant. These are getting difficult to find and they sell out fast, as do most of the time-tested gorgeous peonies.
Bloom Time: Midseason
Size: 30-32 inches tall
Reasons To Love It: This heirloom is very respected in the peony community. Its midseason bush works very well in the border. Also, excellent for floral bouquets and has a delightful scent.
Hybridizer: Crousse, 1885
