Paeonia Lactiflora ‘Bowl of Beauty’, Japanese Peony, Zones 3-8
This Japanese Peony is famous for its huge, hot pink outer petals and contrasting frilly yellow centers. One of the most strikingly beautiful peonies. The foliage stays glossy and green all summer long, and attracts almost no pests. They are deer resistant, fragrant and great for cut flower arrangements. Feed them, water them, and the clumps will expand rapidly, and more and more blooms will result. Flowers are heavy so stake or use peony rings to keep them upright.
