This award-winning, 1981 Wissing-Klehm hybrid has large, semi-double, ruffled flowers that open smoldering coral with rose-pink highlights and mature to pale apricot with golden-yellow stamen centers. A vigorous grower, it is lightly fragrant.
Our beautiful prized display and cut flower Herbaceous Peonies have been divided and nursery-grown in the Netherlands for two years prior to export. Each rootstock has varying amounts of roots and three to five eyes for optimum flower production the first spring (some rootstocks may be trimmed of old wood to allow new root growth). Early. (May/June.) 28" to 32" tall and 3' to 4' wide. HZ: 4-8.
In the Upper South where the winters are predictably cold, the varieties of peonies from which to choose are numerous. The farther south you go, the more limited the choices. But regardless of your proximity to the Mason-Dixon Line, if planting peonies for the first time, I would begin with the tried-and-true. Three fail-proof varieties of peonies that have been around for awhile are 'Festiva Maxima', introduced in 1851, and 'Sarah Bernhardt', introduced in 1906, and 'Monsieur Jules Elie'. These three old-fashioned peonies will bloom throughout the South.
In the warmer parts of Zone 7 and all of Zone 8, early blooming and mid-blooming varieties of peonies are recommended. Some newer varieties of peonies that do well in warmer areas are: 'Miss America', 'Do Tell', 'Coral Charm', 'Big Ben' and 'Kansas'.
