Peony 'Canary Brilliants'


Paeonia Itoh 'Canary Brilliants'. The cone-shaped buds open over a period of two weeks to form semi-double flowers with apricot-coloured petals. The centre of the flower is decorated with subtle red flames. The flowers are well presented above the foliage and are fairly weather resistant. Like most Itohs, the dissected foliage remains attractive until the first frost. A rewarding landscape peony! 

What's more, its colours remind me of my favourite canary when I was a little girl!
