Peony Topeka Garnet

Peony Topeka Garnet


Paeonia lactiflora Topeka Garnet. Fierce red petals form a cup shaped flower and surround a centre of yellow staminoids. Red tipped carpels act as focus points.

The reddish spring foliage gradually changes into a very dark green. Foliage remains healthy even during hot dry seasons. A worthy landscape peony, which acts like a bright focal point in every spring garden.

APS Gold Medal 2012 and APS Award of Landscape Merit 2009.

Registered in 1975.
