Paeonia officinalis subsp. villosa


Hairy Common Peony

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.407.860


Common Peonies are historical varieties, long grown for their late spring display of colourful and fragrant blooms. Plants form an upright bush of dark green leaves that stays attractive all season. This variety produces large, magenta-pink single flowers with contrasting yellow stamens. Blooms are fragrant, and excellent for cutting. Very early flowering. 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.
