Peony Merry Mayshine

Peony Merry Mayshine

Description

Paeonia herbaceous hybrid "Merry Mayshine". Early in the season sturdy buds break through the soil and soon display the delicate looking fernlike foliage. The buds burst open into a cloud of large crimson red single flowers, some with flag petals. Because of its tenuifolia background this peony requires a very sunny and dry spot.

APS Award of Landscape Merit 2009. 

Introduced by Hollingsworth and Smetana. Registered in 1994.
