PEONY potted tuber - Anemoniflora


(tuber in pot with soil, not yet sprouting)

Gardeners and landscapers alike love the results they get from planting this pretty pink variety. Peony officinalis anemoniflora is a very early bloomer that dependably produces an abundance of 5" cerise-pink flowers atop robust 18" plants. Pollinators, such as charming butterflies and busy bees, love this species peony and will visit the landscape daily, to the benefit of surrounding perennial beds. Peonies make exceptional border plants or yard dividers. For best results, we suggest planting in full sun and open areas. Siting peonies in small groups also creates extra garden impact.
