  • Colonel Owen Cousins

    Cousins / Klehm, R.G., 1972


    Herbaceous Hybrid


    Colonel Owen Cousins is an eye catching peony, with an attractive subtle peachy hue to the base of its creamy petals. Flowers are on the larger size. Despite it's strong stems, this plant will require staking as it has an open crown growing habit. We forgive this flaw, as the flower is magnificent.

    Sidebuds: None

    Staking: Best when staked 

    Bloom Date: week 5

    Parentage: Possibly Little Dorrit x Saunders quadruple hybrid

    Fertility: None observed

    • 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.
