Paeonia 'Abalone Pearl'

Blushing Shades on a Long-Lasting Beauty! Wayside gardens This early bloomer is floriferous and so colorful!
Start the Peony season with of the most colorful and engaging varieties ever to come along -- semi-double 'Abalone Pearl' from master Peony breeder William Krekler. These coral-to-pink-washed blooms start as fat 3-inch coral globes, then burst open to reveal colorful yellow anthers in the midst of 6 inches of glorious color-drenched petals!

Coral buds start to swell on this plant in mid-spring, and the blooms continue right up to summer. Ideal for cutting, they are borne on long, sturdy stems and keep both their color and form beautifully inside or out.

In case you like the soft dawn colors of  'Abalone Pearl,' take a  wayside gardens glance at double-flowered 'Coral Charm.' Both are at home in the border, as accent plantings, or as choice specimens. Space plants two feet apart. Zones 2-8.

'Abalone Pearl' reaches 32 inches tall over two to ten years, then continues to bloom for plenty of years.

 of the longest-lived perennials in the world, Peonies are slow-growing and simple to take care of in any sunny, well-drained spot. Because they are time-consuming to propagate, their prices are a bit high, but in case you think about that they have the lifespan of plenty of flowering trees, they become a bargain!
