Flora Plena Rosea - LIMITED SUPPLY


Peony Flora Plena Rosea may be one of the oldest peonies in cultivation. It is so old that it’s origins aren’t entirely know.

I have read that it graced American gardens as early as the 1700s, that it was in cultivation in Europe in the 1600s and that it often grew around monasteries where monks grew it for medicinal reasons.

I don’t know if those stories are verified but I do know that Rosea is undeniably beautiful.

Rosea opens a vibrant pink that fades somewhat as the flower ages. The plant habit is neat and compact and the flowers are a beautiful double.

Rosea opens early in our garden.
