Hot Chocolate Peony


Fragrant and elegant Hot Chocolate Peony adds drama to the late spring garden. Well-formed, double flowers have chocolate red guard petals and cocoa-hued centers that are touched with golden tones. The flowers look striking in bouquets and butterflies love them. Equally impressive is the highly ornamental foliage. Its new growth is copper-burgundy in the spring, turns to a glossy, deep green and then turns a soft yellow in the fall. Easy to grow and very long-lived, peonies are classic garden plants that add a bit of nostalgia and charm to the garden. The fragrant blooms and lush foliage made them popular for years and with the resurgence in breeding, they will continue to improve. Plant as a specimen plant, a foundation planting or along a walkway. Deer tend to avoid. 2-3 eye. Paeonia lactiflora cv 'Hot Chocolate'
