Peony Early Scout
Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Early Scout".
Intense dark red inverted petals form a profusion of single blooms. Flowers snuggle comfortably in between and above the soft green fern-like foliage. Flowering starts very early and is intense. The foliage remains an asset throughout the summer season. The plant has a spreading habit, and is a rapid increaser. Early Scout is a delight to watch on an early morning stroll.
