Peony Bob

Peony Bob


Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Bob". This sought-after peony has one of the darkest red tones, almost black. Bob was awarded the American Peony Society Best in Show at the 2011 convention in Portland. Thérèse of brooks gardens literally grabbed it as a last-minute entry for the competition and won gold, Bob got eternal glory! Generally, the flowers are bomb type, however it is possible to have semi-double and bomb type flowers on the same bush at the same time. The large flowers are softly scented and stems are strong. 

Registered in 1998.
