Santa Fe Peony
This bushy little Peony is hardy through zone 2!
Here's a cold-tolerant, low-maintenance, hardworking Peony you just won't be able to resist! 'Santa Fe' boasts an unusual combination of colors ? fuchsia on the outer petals, creamy white within ? and a heavy midseason bloom, making it indispensable to Peony fans and cutflower lovers!
These large flowers have a sculpted look, so beautifully are the cupped petals held. They last a long time in the vase, and begin blooming about the middle of Peony season ? late spring or early summer, depending upon how far north you are! Cut all you like for indoor arrangements, but save a few for the garden, where they're eye-catching from across the street!
'Santa Fe' is a low-growing, bushy little plant, just a bit over 2 feet tall and no wider than 3 feet. It tolerates just about any well-drained garden soil, and is tolerant through zone 2 in the north ? surprisingly tough and adaptable for one so petite!
Space plants about 3 feet apart in full sun (for best flowering) or light shade. Zones 2-7.
