'Alexander Flemingโ€™ (syn: 'Dr. Alexander Fleming'). This variety is the result of a cross between 'Bunker Hill' and 'Sarah Bernhardt'. The flowers are double pink, sweetly scented with strong stalks, large solferino-rose flowers. From the Dutch peony testing series in 1998. The flowers are deep salmon pink, double, with a light sweet fragrance, mid early. The leaves are pale brown with a green base. The plant height is about 1m tall. The flower stalk and the stem are thick and sturdy, and the number of stems reasonable to good. This cross is one of the best in the assortment. As a cutflower it takes an important place mostly thanks to the sturdiness of the stems. Vase life is some 5 to 8 days, which is good. Unfortunately it appears to be somewhat susceptible to botrytis.
