Duchesse de Nemours is a fluffy white peony with flowers that produce a wonderful fragrance. Once blooming, the flowers are around 12 to 15 cm wide. The classic bright white colours of the flowers make it very well suited for a bridal bouquet. The flowers are medium-sized, which allows Duchesse de Nemours to easily go together with other peonies. 

The flowers of Duchesse de Nemours start as tight, green buds that gradually unfurl to reveal layers of delicate, creamy white petals. This peony variety is known for its longevity and resilience, with some plants continuing to thrive for over 100 years when well cared for. Despite its classic and timeless appearance, Duchesse de Nemours is also surprisingly adaptable and can tolerate a wide range of climates and growing conditions.

Interesting history fact about this white peony: Peony Duchesse de Nemours is an heirloom variety that has been captivating gardeners since its introduction in 1856. This peony cultivar was named after the Duchesse de Nemours, a member of the French royal family known for her elegance and beauty.
