Old favorites for late spring display, prized for their large, colorful, fragrant blooms. Plants form an upright clump of dark green leaves that tend to fade in early summer, so plant behind another perennial or shrub to give some cover. Flowers make great arrangements. Peonies add nostalgia to the sunny border. Flowering is always best in a sunny location.
‘Kansas’ is an award winning variety with large, fully double, dark reddish-pink flowers.
