Description

Huge, Dark Blooms!


A striking colour for a classic perennial. Nearly black, 6-7" flowers make a dramatic appearance in late spring to early summer. Garden visitors as well as butterflies and hummingbirds, will love the fragrant, fully double blooms that sit atop 36-48" dark stems. The glossy, green foliage is very ornamental and provides a colour show in the spring when new growth is copper-burgundy and when the leaves turn soft yellow in the fall. Paeonia.
