Peony Candy Cane

Peony Candy Cane


Paeonia Itoh "Candy Cane". Silky apricot flushed flowers are harmoniously set above the dark green tree peony like foliage.

The foliage stays healthy and crisp until the first frost. The semi-double to sometimes double flowers are softly 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.
