Peony Command Performance

Peony Command Performance


Paeonia herbaceous hybride "Command Performance". A champion without a doubt. Command Performance does as its name suggests. The flowers are massive and the bright colour commands all attention as soon as they are in bud. The flowers are cardinal red and gradually fade to ivory, exposing part of the peregrine heritage of this triple hybrid. The bomb type flowers are softly scented and given the size, it is obvious that one flower per stem is more than enough to fill a vase! Although the stems are strong, a support may be required depending on the garden and the gardener.
