We simply adore this bush peony variety for its unique coloration and habit. Your customers will love it for its unparalleled beauty and style. Peony Bella Donna produces wonderfully fragrant, 6" roselike blooms of pink in the later part of the growing season. As the flowers mature, they gradually soften to a paler shade of pink. Some blooms will develop eye-catching carmine-red edges that will give them a stylish picotee look. The plants grow to 37-38" tall—ideal for borders, feature beds and as yard dividers. Plant in groups in full sun for best results.
