Paeonia ‘Coral Charm’
Pot size #1
Recipient of the American Peony Society Fold Medal and the Award of Garden Merit, from the Royal Horticultural Society. The Coral Charm peony is one of the first peonies to bloom, and it is an award winner because of its exceptional beauty. The Coral Charm forms blossoms that are large, semi-double, bowl-shaped blooms, and has elegant incurved petals that are a coral-peach color, that will gradually fade to pale ivory. The Coral Charm will bloom starting in late spring – early Summer will flower for approximately for 7 to 10 days. The Coral Charm makes an excellent cut flower, but also looks beautiful in the garden. The Coral Charm is reliable and vigorous. It grows in a lush, bushy mound of glossy, dark green foliage that will remain attractive throughout the Summer until frost.
Peonies are virtually pest free. Very useful and adaptable in the garden. Perfect to use a specimen plant, borders, ned, city gardens , or cottage gardens. Plant your peony away from trees and shrubs so that they don’t compete for food and moisture. Low maintenance. Best time to plant peonies is in early fall.
Prefers soil that is chalk, clay, loam, or sandy. Enjoys full sun or partial shade in rich, fertile, and well-drained soils. Provide a sheltered location. Staking may be required as the large Peony flowers tend to arch toward the ground and may be driven to the ground by heavy rain. Low maintenance but remove spent flowers and cut back plants after the foliage has died down in Fall. They are virtually carefree once established.
