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.
