While other red-flowered peonies quickly lose their coloration, 'Red Charm' impresses with its long-lasting, rich, jewel-like color. The fragrance is fruity and intense, like berry jam—a real plus. Plentiful dark-green foliage makes a good backdrop and looks good in the garden after blooming is done. Extremely long-lived and easy to grow, too, so you depend on it year after year. A favorite for bouquets, on its own or in concert with other peonies.
