Peony Edulis Superba

Full, fluffy and in a zingy shade of pink and old rose, this peony has been in demand for over 180 years - think about that. . . . since 1824 or 15 years before the telegraph was invented. Now, we all know that there are lots of new garden plant introductions every year so if a plant has lasted this long, well, there's a reason. Edulis Superba has been a favorite of both professional growers and home gardeners for generations, and is a fine variety for scented, early summer bouquets. Mix with early roses and consider providing a little support to keep this gal's flower-laden stems upright. An excellent variety for heirloom gardens. Deer resistant.
