Peony 'Montezuma'

Peony 'Montezuma'
  • Peony-montezuma3
This lovely big cherry-red flower looks like a giant red poppy. The flowers open from big buds into a a deep goblet, then with time open into a big flower. These are borne on long stems that are apt to fall forward so staking might be needed. The leaves are deeply divided, glossy and mid-green.

Care advice

They require a sunny or partial shade in well-drained soil. Plant Intersectional peonies so that the roots are covered up to where the branching begins. Do not mix manure in the soil before planting as this may rot the eyes. This is an intersectional peony, which is a cross between a woody-stemmed tree peony and an herbaceous peony that dies back in autumn. The woody growth can be cut back during the winter.
