This peony has 8”, semi-double to double flowers that start out a soft copper rose color and over time, change to a soft gold color with a deep burgundy flare in the center.  Both colors are present on the clump at once and flowers appear on both the top and sides of the peony clump.  It has strongly fragrant blossoms.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

The most critical aspect of planting peonies is proper planting depth. For intersectional peonies, the crown should be planted 1½ - 2 inches below soil level. If the eyes have already begun to grow, they may stick up above the soil a bit after planting the crown below soil level. A permanant, sunny, or partly shady site is ideal for intersectional peonies. Protection from afternoon sun and from harsh winds will help to prolong the lives of the exotic flowers. Peonies will perform best in well-drained, evenly moist, rich soil with a pH near neutral and they are drought-tolerant once established. An annual topping of compost is recommended each fall. Though peonies may be slow to establish, you can be assured that they are developing a deep, substantial root system which will help to produce flowers that are well worth the wait. Once established, peonies can live 50 years or more.
