Award of Landscape Merit (ALM) description: ‘Garden Lace’ (Hollingsworth 1992) Fragrant pink, Japanese-form lactiflora blooms midseason with soft, luminous pink petals that transition to warm ivory pink as the season progresses. Petals of heavy substance surround a lacy boss of vibrant yellow staminodes on blossoms that blanket shrub-like plants with attractive, dark green foliage. Plants reach 30 inches (80 cm). This cultivar is exceptionally rain proof, carrying an abundant display of flowers on sturdy stems that require no support. A vigorous grower, this peony is easily established in the landscape.
