Peony Candy Cane

Peony 'Candy Cane'


Paeonia Itoh 'Candy Cane'. Silky apricot flowers sit harmoniously above the dark green tree peony-like foliage.

The foliage remains healthy and crisp until the first frost. The semi-double to sometimes double flowers are delicately scented and several buds per stem extend the flowering season. Naturally, this rare, lovely and floriferous variety, selected by Don Smith, is self-supporting.

Registered in 2004.
