Among the first Peonies to bloom, award-winner Peony 'Coral Charm' is exceptionally beautiful! The large, semi-double blossoms open from deep coral buds into bowl-shaped blooms, with elegantly incurved petals of glowing coral-peach, before gradually fading to pale ivory. They are borne in profusion on strong stems and are a real standout in the garden. Beloved for the beauty of their exquisite flowers and their handsome foliage, which often turn shades of rust and orange in the autumn. Winner of the prestigious American Peony Society Gold Medal and Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society . Ht 90cm
Peonies produce their extravagant display in early June every year, regardless of weather, because they are among the most durable and longest-lived plants. They have no natural enemies, no exacting cultural requirements beyond full sun and good sweet soil, and they shrug off cold. After bloom is complete, you are left with a handsome mound of glossy, deep green foliage that will happily anchor the next sequence of flowers in the border. Finally, Peonies make superior cut flowers, lasting more than a week if cut in full bud.
We ship large roots that are fresh from the growing fields. While a newly planted Peony seldom makes a first-class show in its first season, these vigorous plants will reach the top of their form in their second or third year and will then last for generations.
