This variety remains among the most favorite peonies for its large double ruby red flowers; a vigorous peony with excellent foliage that's as lovely in a vase as it is in the garden
Felix Supreme Peony features bold lightly-scented ruby-red flowers at the ends of the stems from late spring to early summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It's compound leaves remain green in color throughout the season.
This is a relatively low maintenance perennial, and should be cut back in late fall in preparation for winter. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
Felix Supreme Peony will grow to be about 30 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. The flower stalks can be weak and so it may require staking in exposed sites or excessively rich soils. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
This perennial should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in rich soils. This plant can be propagated by division.
