Color of Peonies
This time of year there are some marvelous colors in the garden including in our Tree Peony Collection. Highlighted below are some of the wonderful colors in our collection. Beck Armstrong has turned these dramatic pictures into coloring pages, thus your coloring box is your only limitation in creating striking pictures.
A personal favorite is the copper-pink of Paeonia ‘Kopper Kettle’. This large, semi-double flower has occasional streaks of yellow with dark red centers framing yellow stamens. This selection boosts sturdy stems, requires no staking, and has lush, toothed foliage.
Described as a rose-form flower with delicate fragrance, Paeonia ‘Yin Hong Qiao Dui’ has soft red flowers turning purplish-red at the base. This mid-season bloomer has stout, stiff branches and many, long-blooming flowers.
Finally, the lovely Paeonia ‘Harlequin’ has a smaller flower. It is a blend of mauve and ivory- cream coloration.
