Paladin - Peony

Paladin - Peony

SKU: 17-117

Saunders, 1950


Rather a cool name - a paladin was a peer in Charlemagne’s court - a fearsome warrior.  Slightly pointed buds are an interesting contrast to the more usual round shape. The flowers are a vibrant red and with an extra layer or two of petals.  The petals are held upright rather than cupped.  All in all an excellent short, red flowered Saunders hybrid.

  • 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.
