Coral

  • (Anderson 1999) (Intersectional) The coppery orange and red overtones of this unusual intersectional get raves in the garden or as an unusual cut flower; gets 32 inches tall by 48 inches wide; vigorous originator's stock.  
  • (Wissing 1964) Large brilliant coral semi-double; the tight coral pink buds open to a rich coral peach then fade softer shades of coral all the way to tangerine yellow; a mature plant can sometimes show many shades of coral at once making the plant even more spectacular; tall, but strong stems and great vigor.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (Cousins/Klehm 1981) A wide cupped-shaped vivid coral single with massive center of bright golden stamens; strong upright grower about 30 inches tall; nothing more elegant than massive bouquets of this peony on a stately dinner table.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (Wissing 1965) Intensely coral semi-double with a rosy infusion that add a sunset glow to the color; large dramatic blooms in some seasons are so full of petals, the flower looks double; reaches 32 inches tall and, like all of the corals, needs its first year to grow good roots, so don't expect much on top the ground.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
