This bomb  formed peony is perfectly named and beautiful. Pale pink guards petals  surround a collar of light yellow lance shaped petals.

RED CHARM

(Glasscock,1944) 

Sold out 

 COLOR: Red

FORM: Double

HEIGHT: 80cm (32in)

FRAGRANCE: Slight

BLOOM SEASON: Early

Each spring I  look out onto the peony beds when this one is blooming and I remember  why Red Charm is one of the best reds available. It is a true deep red when the weather is cloudy, and a striking bright red in the sun. Red Charm never fails to produce a lovely plant and resists late frosts very well. The large double dark red blossoms stand atop strong stems  and are striking in flower arrangements and the garden. An APS Gold  medal winner. $35.00

RED GRACE

(Glasscock-Klehm,1980) 

 COLOR: Red

FORM: Double

HEIGHT: 80cm (32in)

FRAGRANCE: Faint

BLOOM SEASON: Early to mid-season

Another  lovely red double  peony. Similar in color to Red Charm but this flower forms blossoms that are tightly packed with petals and the result is a  perfect red ball. Red Grace is very slow to open so the flowers  must be picked at a later stage than most or it will fail to open  altogether. A strong plant and a wonderful landscape specimen. $35.00

Rose Heart has been at the center of a name controversy for a few years. Formerly known in the US as Bess Bockstoce and confused with another peony of the same name it has now been officially  renamed as Rose Heart.
