Peony Red Grace

Peony Red Grace

Description

Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Red Grace". The promising flowerbuds lead one to imagine the fascinating play of ruby red petals. So, while the colour slowly flows from ruby to a warm red tone they unfold into impressive globes. The flowers are carried on sturdy stems and surrounded by bright green foliage. Dispite the impressive stems some support will be helpful. This vigorous grower deserves a bright sunny spot in your garden. 

Apart from a lovely addition to your garden, Red Grace is also a precious cut flower. In comparison with some other respected early red peonies, from "officinalis" descent, she has a long vase live. To cut a bouquet - or just one - subtly feel the flower bud. Once it is soft as a marshmellow and showing sufficient colour, it is time to cut. It is wise to remove no more than one-third of a mature plant. 

She is an early bloomer and in combination with most classical peonies she will prolong the peony bloom season for several weeks. Red Grace is lesser known, but without doubt a beautiful, graceous and desirable peony.
