This gorgeous double red peony with 6-8 inch blooms starts blooming late Spring and really puts on a dramatic show! Zone 3-8, Height 2-3 ft. Full sun to light shade in the deeper Southern States. Also, do not plant deeper than 2 inches of soil on top. Go deeper, and it will bloom poorly! A beautiful classic! Plump, heavily petaled peonies measure 6-8 in. across with dark red petals. Dark, glossy foliage springs up in a hurry; forms a good-looking backdrop for the spectacular blossoms. Shrublike mounds are 2-3 ft. high and ornamental even after the flowers fade- around midsummer. Creates a low-growing, low-maintenance hedge that never needs pruning! Plant in full sun.
