Peony Sword Dance

Peony 'Sword Dance'


Paeonia lactiflora 'Sword Dance'. Bright red petals curl up and form a bowl, filled with delicately dotted golden and red petaloids. A late, exuberant flowering and sturdy plant with healthy foliage. The stems resemble long swords that certainly do not require any support. Several side buds prolong the flowering period. This classical peony is loved as a landscape plant or in a joyful garden bouquet.
