If you’ve ever driven past old New England farms and seen large plantings of vibrant pink peonies, overloaded with flowers, then you have no doubt met Edulis Superba.
Edulis Superba was first grown in 1824 - almost 200 years ago! And there’s a reason it’s still popular. Edulis Superba is the whole package - amazing fragrance, vibrant color and beautiful flower form.
The overall color is deep pink with lavender undertones,.but as the flower opens, light pink/cream petals emerge in the flower’s collar.
The blooms are well-formed doubles that will require support in the landscape.
Edulis Superba’s biggest showstopper is its fragrance, easily making our top 5 most fragrant peonies list.
