Double Red Peony blooms late spring in a crimson red bringing vivid color and fragrance for decades to come. Large fluffy blooms can reach 8 inches. Peonies need full sun & neutral soil. This variety has beautiful lush foliage and strong stems, making it an excellent cut flower that will have a week of vase life when cut in full bud.
Peonies are very long lived and might need to be divided every 10 years.
Peonies rarely bloom their first year, like most long-lived perennials it can take three years for them to bloom prolifically, but it's worth the wait!
When planting peonies, make sure the eyes (the point where new growth emerges) are no more than two inches deep. Peonies need plenty of sun- 6 or more hours a day to bloom. If they are planted in a shady site, they will not flower.
