Peony Old Faithful

Peony Old Faithful

Description

Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Old Faithful" Beautiful full red buds herald a flower without precedent! Velvet petals are large, deep red and intricately interwoven. 

Sturdy stems clad in glossy dark green foliage compliment the above. It is a quadruple hybrid and the origins are unknown, regardless it is a jewel for the garden. If you really have to, it can also be cut for a sumptuous floral display.

Old Faithful is not the tallest geyser in Yellow Stone National Park but certainly the most reliable. This peony is as reliable, beautiful and recurring as its natural namesake. 

The 3-year old roots fresh from our fields show with panache the promise they hold. Which translated in the awards we received by judges at garden shows, by just admiring its lovely roots.
