Mary E. Nicholls

Huge flowers

The first thing you will notice about Mary E. Nicholls are its huge flowers. They have a warm, ivory white hue that gets darker to the centre. It gives this peony variety a wonderfully dramatic effect that would not be out of place on a painting by Rembrandt. It also enjoys an exceptional explosive blooming. Both characteristics make Mary E. Nicholls one of the best big white peonies available on the market today.
