Herbaceous Hybrid

Height: 60-90 cm

Fragrance: Faint

Sidebuds: None

Staking: Location dependent 

Bloom Date: Week 4

Parentage: Possibly officinalis rosea plena x Alice Harding

    Since planting conditions, and other variables are outside of our control, we cannot guarantee roots once they have been planted. 


  • A Note on Observations

    Observations of height, side buds, and staking are from Hudson, Quebec (zone 5a) grown in full sun, in a clay based soil. In different environments plants will perform slightly different. Instead of 1 to 2 side buds per stem, you may have none. If growing in slightly shadier environment, your peony may require staking. The observations are meant as a general guide, in how your peony should perform in optimal planting. In the case of fragrance, these are observations based on personal sniff tests in the field, we must bear in mind our olfactory senses are all different.
