Plant Type: Peonies

A beautiful hybrid between the famous peonies Bunker Hill and Sarah Bernhardt. Rounded blooms of deep apple blossom pink with a sweet scent. Freely produced side buds extend the flowering period so that this charming peony may still be in flower right at the end of June. It has a short dense bushy habit with good foliage and will grow to a height of approximately 90cm. This great garden plant is always one of our top 10 recommended peonies.
