I love this peony--it's got a drunken, happy-go-lucky generosity that I find irresistible. Yes, it does sprawl, and the blooms get paler and smaller after the first flush (though I still think the play of colors and textures is charming, and I really like the shape of the smaller flowers). But it's got a lovely fresh scent, it gives you armfuls of blooms to cut while still leaving plenty on the plant, and it keeps blooming longer than my other peonies.

My plant is new, and the blooms look like Poppysue's first picture. I was a little disappointed they faded to completely cream-white fairly fast. Maybe it will stay colored longer after the plant matures. But it's beautiful when it first opens!

Peonies like to be planted shallowly; the budding tips should only be 2" down. Add bone meal to good soil in the yard; do not add nitrogen or nitrogenous compost.
