Coral Sunset is an American Peony Society Gold Medal Winner. Out of all the different Coral varieties, 'Coral Sunset' has the richest, deepest, most vivid color.
Vibrant coral flowers bloom 5-10 days ahead of Coral Charm, offering growers a slightly staggered harvest window when growing both varieties.
These are very vigorous plants with strong, tall, stiff stems, and heavy set flower buds. After a few seasons in healthy soil, they will throw many stems and flowers (up to 20+ per plant).
Emerald green, clean foliage enhances bouquets and forms a nice shape in the landscape.
Compared to the traditional double "bomb" peony, these are much more upright, strong plants, and can be grown without staking.
For fall 2017 we will be digging and dividing a very nice section of plants on the farm! These are plants that are 10+ years old, and were planted in one of the farm's prime locations in terms of soil and sun. We've had an abnormally wet summer, so although it may have been a tough season for cut flowers, the upcoming root harvest should be exceptional... We will offer 2 ship dates this year to accommodate growers from different regions as best as possible.
