The Paeonia Lactiflora 'Gay Paree' - 'Gay Paree' Peony, also referred to as 'Chinese Peony', is an herbaceous perennial with dark green, ribbed, lance shaped leaves and fragrant, anemone-shaped, rich cerise pink flowers. Each spring, new deep emerald green leaves emerge, creating a lush, large busy mound lasting well throughout fall. Followed by large, full, lotus-shaped, rich cerise pink blooms with frilly, ivory strap-like petals in the heart in late spring to early summer. These blooms grow on long, strong stems, so no staking or wire fencing are required to keep them upright.

Full sun to partial sun.

Attracts bees and butterflies.
