Fernleaf Peonies are very special and unique specimens, a must for the perennial collector. This selection forms a low, bushy mound of very finely divided green leaves, bearing small double crimson-red flowers that seem to float above the foliage. Perfect for edging or in a sunny rock garden. Flowers appear earlier than the more common hybrid Garden Peonies. Plants may go summer dormant in warm regions, especially the first season or two. Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the fall. Trim off old stems to the ground in late fall, to help prevent disease problems.
