[Krekler 1976] Lactiflora: Vibrant cranberry red guard petals surround a center of matching cranberry staminodes tipped with yellow on this Japanese-style peony. Glossy flowers have a lustrous finish accented with twinkling, gold-tipped filaments in the center. A strong grower with sturdy stems that easily support the flowers without staking. Wind and weather resistant, this unusual variety always attracts attention. Blooms late.
