Peony Red Description

Peonies are known for their unsurpassed garden beauty.  Grown for its huge romantic flowers with an romantic fragrance that bloom for late spring to early summer. Peonies are extremely hardy and easy to grow, and among the longest lived perennials.  5-6" double blooms blooms are exceptionally long lasting in the vase

Use peonies as a low hedge or backdrop for later blooming sun perennials.  The attractive leaves help cover dying spring bulb foliage.

You will often see ants crawling over the unopened buds, which led to the notion that the ants activity is required for the blooms to open.  Actually ants are drawn to the flowers sweet nectar and have nothing to do with the buds opening.  They don't hurt the plants.  Just brush them off when you are cutting bouquets to bring indoors.

Peonies grow 2-3 feet tall, and thrive in full sun to part shade

Features: Butterfly Lovers, Cold Hardy, Cut Flower, Deer Resistant, Foliage Interest, Rabbit Resistant,
