Paeonia lactiflora ‘Sword Dance’


Single Peony

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.407.610


Garden Peonies are old favorites for late spring display, prized for their large, colourful and fragrant blooms. Plants form an upright bush of dark green leaves that stays attractive all season. This single selection has rich lipstick-red petals, with a contrasting yellow centre to the flower. Medium-sized flowers, compact. Late. Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the fall. Flowering is always best in a sunny location. Trim off old stems to the ground in late fall, to help prevent disease problems. Excellent for cutting.
