Paeoni delavayi v.lutea

Once inside the Holkham Walled Garden  turn left and stroll along the pathway behind the tower with the weather vane. The Paeoni delavayi v.lutea is bursting into flower and looking magnificant.
Delavay's tree peony is a species of peony named after Pierre Jean Marie Delavay (1834-1895) a French missionary, explorer and botanist who went to China in 1867 and sent over 200,000 plant specimens back to France.
