Peony Hot Chocolate

Peony 'Hot Chocolate'


Paeonia lactiflora 'Hot Chocolate'. The striking dark colour and the remarkable arrangement of the outer and inner petals create an attractive whole. 

A few lateral buds per stem extend the flowering season. The highly weatherproof flowers are complemented by straight stems, covered with healthy foliage. A surprising landscape plant, ideal for an audacious border. An introduction from the Sass family. 

Registered in 1971.
