Tell me which peonies I want...

newbee5(z5)August 17, 2012


I am interested in the type of peonies that have several flower petals, and tend to stay tightly wound and round as they open up. Kind of like a cabbage...

I'm not sure if there are certain varieties that I prefer, or if this is more of an issue of timing, and the stage of bloom they are in.

If you have some ideas, please post. Thank you.

you are probably looking for a "Bomb" type peony. They are packed full of petals and one of my fvoirtes. Good luck.

I like the Heartland Peony Society website. They have a bloom time calendar (they call it bloom sequence)and pictures of lots of cultivars.

You can't go wrong with bartzella. It's one of the most popular and common ones out there, but it's a very reliable grower with large yellow blooms.

It is currently all over eBay.
