Karl Rosenfield Peony

Showy and Fragrant

This classic herbaceous peony adds fragrance and brilliant, fuchsia-red color to the late spring garden. Its showy, double flowers look outstanding in cut-flower arrangements, while its glossy green foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season. Growing 30-36 inches tall with a similar spread, this long-lived perennial makes an excellent specimen plant in the perennial flower bed—or plant several to create a small hedge along fences, sidewalks or driveways. Karl Rosenfield Peony grows best when planted in full sun to partial shade. Attracts butterflies. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid. Zones 3-8.
