Pink Memorial Day Peony.

Paeonia officinalis rosea plena Pink Double Memorial Day Peony  (ancient cultivated species 1613)

This pink double flowered form of the Memorial Day Peony has exceptional color and form on compact plants which at maturity will be about 4 feet across. Found throughout Europe in the wake of old monasteries where they were cultivated in medicinal gardens for centuries this species still adorns our gardens today. For those seeking doubleness in their hybrid peonies this has been a successful fertile seed producer but requires that you help the process along by applying the pollen to the stigma as it is normally concealed from the bees by the many extra petals. Known to be tolerant of warm climates it is a good choice for those wanting to experiment in more southern locations where the regular garden peony is more challenging to grow. Week 3 bloom date rating.

We will also have a limited number in large pots at the nursery for our local customers.
