Peony 'Henry Bockstoce'


Paeonia herbaceous hybrid 'Henry Bockstoce'. The bold foliage and matching cardinal red flowers are eye-catching.

It is a striking plant that requires more space, but also a little more time to establish. As the saying goes, first the roots, then the shoots. Your patience will be rewarded with large flowers on strong stems and a healthy, vigorous plant. It is one of the last peonies in this shade of red to flower.

Registered in 1955.
