Karl Rosenfield Peony
Huge, Fragrant Blooms on a Classic Shrub
Can you imagine a shrub covered in giant, fluffy pompons of bright scarlet? Consider those brilliant red blooms lofted above deep green foliage on sturdy stems, gently swaying in an afternoon breeze and emitting a sweet perfume to draw you in for a closer look. This, and more, is what you will experience when you plant a Karl Rosenfield Peony in your yard this year.
Karl Rosenfield Peony features stunning red, double flowers that are nearly 8 inches across! Each gorgeous bloom begins its display in mid-to-late spring, and includes a subtle hint of yellow at its center for a touch of added elegance. Cut a few for your dining room table and you’ll enjoy their beauty and fragrance inside as well as out (lasting over a week when cut in bud).
Your Karl Rosenfield peony is a herbaceous perennial shrub that will grow up to 3 feet in height with an equal spread. It has an upright nature with erect stems to hold its spring bloom aloft. Karl Rosenfield is adaptable to variety of soils and can tolerate partial shade.
Wildlife adore it, but deer and rabbits don’t seem to have an interest in it. Plant one of these as a focus/accent plant anywhere in your yard for a splash of spring color, or use several as a decorative border. Karl Rosenfield’s dark green foliage is a lively backdrop for other plants in the garden even after the spring bloom has been completed.
It’s a hardy shrub, easy to care for and generally maintenance free. The shrub dies back after frost, and you can leave it to nature’s purposes, or cut it back for a clean look to your winter landscape.
Karl Rosenfield is a traditional, old hybrid with the classic double peony many think of when envisioning a peony shrub. It’s hard to beat a classic, tried-and-true variety like Karl Rosenfield, and we’re sure you’ll agree when you try one out in your yard this year.
