Go Back Mr. Ed Peony

Paeonia 'Mr Ed'

Plant Type: Peonies

Blushing pink, bomb-type double, lightly fragrant, mid-season, 36" tall, lactiflora. May have pink flowers and luscious blush-cream blooms on the same bush. Good cut flower with a light fragrance.

Blush pink double blooms have a creamy yellow base.  The only variety to have two distinct colors on the same bush. A mutation of the popular Mons. Jules Elie. Needs support and good for cutting.

Also known as "Mr. Ed"; very unusual peony which can bloom either rose pink, cream blush, or a combination of the two colors; blossoms are large and have a light, sweet fragrance; vigorous grower with tall strong stems; good cut flower.
