Double Peony

USDA Zone: 2-9

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 selection features large, double cerise-red flowers with bright yellow stamens. Heavy bloomer with sturdy stems. Excellent cut flower. Reliable and vigorous. Mid-season. 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.
