A hybrid peony with large, fully double flowers of scarlet red. It has thick, shiny petals that are tightly interwoven forming a flower like that of an old rose. The flowers are held on long stems that might need staking, but makes them excellent for cutting. Mid season.
Peonies will grow in most soils as long as they are not wet, including clay soils. They require a sunny or partially shaded site. Herbaceous peonies need to be planted with the eye (the dormant pink buds) no more than 2.5cm below the surface of the soil. Do not mix manure in the soil before planting as this may rot the eyes.
