A Russian variety not often offered in the United States, Kreiser Aurora, has large, well-formed, doulble flowers in a bright ruby red.
Yellow stamens visible in the bloom offer a striking contrast to the ruby red petals.
Kreiser Aurora grew very well in 2019, despite the extremely wet weather that affected other peony varieties.
Overall this is a vigorous plant with beautiful blooms, which is why it made my top 10 Favorite list for 2019!
