Fernleaf Peony

Fernleaf Peony

When you're planning a designer-look landscape, the key is adding something unexpected to the mix. That's where Fernleaf Peony comes in! This highly sought-after species peony creates a spectacular, one-of-a-kind display gardeners crave. Brilliant, deep red, fragrant flowers sit among finely incised, ornamental fernlike foliage. Fernleaf Peony is like nothing else on the market today, and is seldom offered at garden centers. Compact plants grow to a diminutive 15" tall, making them the perfect selection for early-summer front borders, but they also look great added to a mixed seasonal bouquet or fresh floral arrangement for indoor enjoyment. Easy to grow; perennializes well.
