Niigata Akashigata
A truly exquisite Japanese Tree Peony. The flower buds are pink but on opening fade to a semi-translucent white towards the edges, retaining  reddish blotches at the base. Care needs to be taken when purchasing this variety because Japanese nurseries do not differentiate between this plant and Akashigata. It is best to find a Peony specialist who is prepared to wait for his imports to flower before selling them on. Plant Source: Kelways
