As sassy and flamboyant as any cancan dancer can be, Gay Paree shows off its flair for the dramatic with 6" flowers in a contrasting palette of deep cerise-pink and creamy white. A Japanese-type peony, it has a highly floriferous nature and bears a slew of delightfully fragrant, long-lasting flowers.
