Paeonia lactiflora 'Kansas' is a real show stopper! This old variety has been around since 1940 and it's still widely considered the very best double red Peony .The vivid crimson flowers are borne on exceptionally strong stems. The show is glorious in the garden or in a vase. The opening buds unfurl some of the biggest double flowers you'll ever see in the garden. The lightly fragrant flowers are a delightful and make excellent cut flowers.
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. Flowers early summer ht 90 .cm
