Peony Pink Vanguard

Peony Pink Vanguard


Paeonia herbaceous hybrid “Pink Vanguard”.

Opaque pink semi-double cup shaped flowers are held above a dome of healthy green foliage. Strong stems are covered entirely by the large glossy leaves, which remain pristine until long after the flowering season.

At our open field days in 2014 when a cold snap delayed the flowering of most varieties, Pink Vanguard surpassed our expectations. Frost resistant, early flowering, fragrant, a reliable bloomer and no staking required. These qualities impressed our visitors. During the guided tour everybody sniffed the flowers and the lingering scent of cloves was confirmed by 80% of the participants who ventured outside on this cold and windy day. 

Needless to say that this one comes with a superior pedigree, with promises for more beauties!
