Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Fantasia". The flowers, pink and single, dance like butterflies above the luxuriant foliage.
The burgundy red shoots arrive well ahead of most other peonies. They turn into light green coloured leaves, which contract perfectly with the still deep burgundy stems. Seedpods appear in the early summer and can be harvested from mature (3-4 year old) plants.
A nice fantasy of Prof. Saunders, which does not require any staking.
