Primevere Peony

Up to 8" Blooms

Plump, heavily petaled peonies measure 6-8 in. across with deep pink outer petals and white and pink centers. 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. No. 1 root divisions with 2-3 eyes. Zones 3-8.
