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. The sturdy stems are completely covered by large, glossy leaves that remain pristine long after the flowering season.

At our open field days in 2014, when a cold snap delayed flowering for most varieties, Pink Vanguard exceeded our expectations. Frost resistant, early flowering, fragrant, a reliable bloomer and no staking required. These were the qualities that impressed our visitors. During the tour, everyone sniffed the flowers and the lingering scent of cloves was confirmed by 80%.

Needless to say, this one has an excellent pedigree and promises more beauties to come!
