'Starburst' herbaceous peony pair
Two late season blooming herbaceous peonies in the anemone or 'Japanese' form. This flower form consists of a background row of guard petals which surround a center in which the stamens are replaced by spiky petaloids. These flowers are lighter than the heavy doubles and hold up well in the landscape without support. Both are fragrant and ideal for cut flowers.
Bloom time: These showy peonies bloom in our USDA zone 6a garden in the first to the second week of June.
Zone hardiness: Proven in USDA zones 3-9.
Plant sizes: 4-5 'eyes' or buds with proportional roots. This size plant will most likely flower in its second spring in the ground, though many do bloom the first spring.
Notable characteristics: Very striking, rich purple-magenta outer guard petals contrast with the frosted cream, pink and purple center. Outstanding cultivar suitable for either the cutting garden or as a landscape plant. This is a very vigorous peony which establishes quickly.
Notable characteristics: Distinctive anemone form herbaceous peony with golden filaments exploding from a background of dark raspberry red guard petals. Great as a cut flower or in the landscape.
