Peony Fairy Tale

Peony 'Fairy Tale'


Paeonia lactiflora 'Fairy Tale'. Our ruby red gem. Found in a collection that is a little fairy tale in itself. Glossy petals in a striking red colour form an anemone-type flower. 

The flowers stand on sturdy stems that need no support. Side buds extend the flowering period of this beautiful landscape plant.

Registered in 1963.
